Lauri has always had love of the horse, from gymkhanas in her younger years, to showing western pleasure, halter & trail in her adult years.
In 2005 she was introduced to the mustang and this horse opened up a whole new world for her.
Lauri became a founding member and president of the non-profit organization, Mustangs of America Foundation.
That lead to 2007, becoming a volunteer for the Mustang Heritage Foundation. She traveled to almost all of the Extreme Mustang Makeovers each year giving of her time & love for the event of getting these horses adopted.
Lauri lives in Northern Nevada with her husband Tom. They have 2 beautiful adult daughters. Lauri & Tom own a very successful granite fabrication & tile installation company.
They live on their 5 acres with 2 BLM Burros, 3 dogs, way too many cats & coming soon a few Scottish highland cattle.
