Laura Grace has been a Tennessean her whole life and recently graduated from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a minor in International Agriculture and Natural Resources. Through her studies, she developed an interest in learning about social injustices that many face in the world today, specifically focusing on human rights abuses both domestically and abroad. She currently resides in Portland where she has been able to satiate her thirst for good coffee, music, books, and hiking. Her favorite thing about the PNW is the variety- from beaches to mountains, there are endless opportunities for exploration. She loves to write and supports community development, which aids her work as Davidson and Associates Digital Marketing Coordinator.
