In the office

Laura began her career in Financial Services in 2003, and before joining HarperLees worked in several client-focused roles, including in the private banking sector. Her current role means she works closely with the Financial Planners, meeting clients face to face to establish their financial and personal ambitions before creating a Lifestyle Financial Plan using cashflow modelling. Where an individual’s needs require a product solution, such as investment, protection or Inheritance Tax planning, Laura assists in the research and recommendation.


At home

Spending time with her husband and two daughters is important to Laura, even when she is being talked into trying an unachievable gym move at a trampoline park, or trying to beat the girls and her husband at mini-golf. But when she does find a moment of “me time”, Laura enjoys running, HIIT, and aerobic-based dance classes.

In the


On an ideal weekend, you can find me:

Out and about on foot or bicycle with friends or family - incorporating a pub lunch into the mix.

My favourite holiday destination is:

Very hard to choose! Las Vegas or Hawaii.

My favourite song to play in the car is:

Anything I can sing loud to.

If I could be any fictional character, I would be:

Mary Poppins. Getting all household chores completed with a click of a finger and a song would be superb! One bag that holds everything - who could refuse!

If I could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, I would win a medal in:

Being a mum.

When the dessert menu arrives, I’m looking for:

Sticky toffee pudding with Vanilla ice cream.

The three qualities that draw me to new people are:

People with confidence, who smile and who are down to earth.

The three people at my dream dinner party would be:

Freddie Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp, and Jack Whitehall. Instead of a dinner party, could we make it a road trip?
