Laura graduated from Western University, obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree with a Major in Political Science. Deciding to turn her life-long passion for sports into a career, she earned her Post-Graduate Degree from Humber College in Sport Business Management, graduating with honours in 2019.

During her time at Humber College, Laura worked for the Athletic Department, assisting with administration and the organizing of Intramural Sports.

Laura’s role has expanded to involve contributing to the marketing team’s brainstorming sessions and recruiting as part of the HR Team, where she co-coordinates Cosmos Sports & Entertainment’s Internship Program. She is responsible for conducting interviews and hiring candidates for the program; recently expanding this role to include the hiring of external candidates to help grow the Cosmos team & win the business.
