Laurel is a Wood County native that grew up in a working-class family. Today, she calls Perrysburg home. She worked hard after the loss of her mother to support her father, a disabled veteran, amid the Great Recession. She then earned her bachelor's degree to find a better living in Wood County, the place she calls home.
She’s running because she believes Ohioans deserve better from their representatives. Ohio can do more to ensure residents have quality healthcare, economic opportunity, safe schools that offer excellent education, and a clean and beautiful Wood County.
