Laura is an active outdoor enthusiast. She enjoys free diving, scuba diving, offshore fishing and hiking through the mountains. As a little girl, she began to work with her godparents in their marine upholstery business. Her love of boats and boating began at an early age when her godfather would take her to different marinas throughout South Florida. After she met Felipe in the Florida Keys, Laura began to spearfish and became an avid angler and conservationist. While studying Biology at Florida International University, she actively volunteered with marine mammal rescue organizations, and enjoyed ecology courses - particularly in the Everglades. Today, Laura heads up Castaway Coffee’s conservation efforts and coordinates events, fundraising, and other collaborations with conservation organizations.
