Laurel has always found community through music and singing. At age 7 she began singing with Marin Girls Chorus just North of San Francisco. After graduating that program in 2004, she minored in vocal performance at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, where she also joined a music service organization and served as an officer for several years. Since 2014 she has served Marin Girls Chorus on and off in various positions, including several years as Board President and several years as Director of Operations. She relocated to Los Angeles in 2020 and was thrilled to find a new choral home in VOX.
Aside from singing and supporting choral organizations, she owns a multi-clinician psychotherapy practice specializing in treating trauma and anxiety in high-achieving adults.
