After graduating from the SUNY Purchase with a degree in fine arts, Laura packed up her bags and hit the road with Jack Schott. What they thought would be a month long road trip turned into 3 years of living on the road researching summer camps and learning spaces. They made incredible friends, learned more than they could imagine, and found a talent for speaking and sharing ideas. After years on the road, Jack and Laura, founded and now run Stomping Ground. Laura is currently working on her Masters in Social work from Columbia University, in an effort to build more equity into the fabric of the organization.
