Laura joined the AAT in September 2019 as Patient Outreach Programme Co-ordinator. Laura supports patients and families dealing with Aplastic Anaemia by bringing them together to connect and access helpful information at dedicated meetings held across the UK. Laura feels passionately about working with those affected by AA as she was diagnosed with the disease herself in 2016, undergoing ATG, a trial of Eltrombopag and finally a successful sibling Stem Cell Transplant in 2018. 

Since graduating from the University of Manchester, Laura's career has focussed on marketing, communications and events in roles for the NHS, and both the not-for-profit and private sectors. Laura lives in Manchester with her husband, two children and cheeky cat. She enjoys making new friends, going to the theatre and discovering new places on family holidays. You can contact Laura on [email protected]
