A SMALL TOWN GIRL AT HEART, Lara has had the opportunity to work in and travel to some wonderful cities around the world. When it came time to choose a place to raise a family, however, she returned to her beloved home-town and settled in Dundas where she currently resides with her husband, daughter and two dogs.Lara is an Alumni of McMaster University and former staff member of the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Humanities where she had the opportunity to collaborate with students, faculty, alumni and donors. In her role as president of the board of directors at the McMaster Children’s Centre, Lara lead the fundraising efforts for the Artist in the Centre Project as well as directed campaigns for much needed funds for the centre and the kids. It was her interest in architectural styles and unique buildings that propelled Lara toward a career in real estate, but it is her strong character and commitment to people that will earn her success, one client at a time.
