About Me


My name is Laura and I’m very excited to meet you! I’ve lived in the Ottawa-Gatineau area my whole life and at one point, I had a heart transplant. But that’s just one part of who I am. I’m also a sailor, animal lover, writing enthusiast, Netflix watcher, yogi, movie lover, chocolate indulger, fitness craver, pizza glutton, and so much more. It took me a long time to figure out that there is in fact more! Having a heart transplant is a big important, sometimes kind of annoying aspect of my life, but that’s just it, it’s one aspect. I want to share with all of you what being a Heart Transplant Recipient is all about. It’s about living! Eating the pizza but also doing the squats! Reading the books and going on adventures! It’s simple, complicated and a little nuts sometimes. Doesn’t this kinda sound like your life? It’s a lot of fun but also a lot of #adulting. I take more meds than my grandma and I don’t let anything hold me back. There are many obstacles to being a Heart Transplant Survivor that you may not be aware of and I’m here to show you how to get around them, over them, under them, or through them. Whatever it takes! This is what I have the most experience in and I’m ready to share my expertise and hopefully help out my fellow franken-peeps here and there or anyone who needs a little boost! This isn’t just about me. I really want to meet you as well! Leave jokes, pics, stories, whatever you like! I can’t wait to meet you 🙂 XO
