My name is Laura Macauley. I went to the University of Texas at El Paso and was a javelin thrower for 4 years. After receiving my undergraduate degree in Communication I decided to continue and receive my masters degree. I had various marketing jobs before living in Boise, Idaho for 2 years with my husband, James. We began doing freelance marketing work in hopes of traveling full time. James passed away at age 27. Since then, I have taken my work on the road with me and have been traveling the world. I decided even though this horrific thing has happened to me, I will still live. It's not what happens to you in life, it's how you chose to react that defines you.
