Hailing from small town Indiana, Laura quickly fell head over (very cute) heels for Chicago. Known for her sunny disposition, she brings a cheerful attitude to any situation, embraces every opportunity to throw a shindig (“The Bachelor” finale included), describes herself as a perfectionist with a sense of humor, believes a long run (or a pedicure) are the best stress relievers, admits to being a kids’ party aficionado from her preschool teacher days, surrounds herself with stacks of magazines to keep up with wedding, fashion and interior design trends, declares champagne, a good laugh with girlfriends, and a vase full of flowers are the best mood boosters, and confesses she doesn’t have a favorite color but rather a serious love affair with certain color combinations (navy and white is always right!).

Bursting with ‘Sweet Carolina’ southern charm, Ginny is best known for her infectious laugh and signature smile, feels her creative spirit and can do attitude best suit her for city life (though does miss the merriment and magic of outdoor fish frys and fireflies), considers herself the ultimate team player who’d never drop the ball on the slightest detail, attributes her optimism and sound advice to her caring personality and professional counseling days, rejuvenates every morning taking long walks with her dog Tucker, loves spending afternoons in sunny museums devouring all genres of art from old to new, and believes the best parties -from big southern showers to intimate wedding receptions- are the ones filled with the warmth and love of family and friends.
