Laural Payne

Laural would describe herself as fun, flexible & nerdy - She may be new, but we can already see these things coming out in the best of ways! Laural spends her weekends chasing her little girl or volunteering at the Missouri Institute of Natural Science where they are currently building the Nation's largest Triceratops (this is where her fun nerdiness shines). She loves being outside, gardening, boating, hiking, and road-tripping with no destination in mind! We hear she grows tomatoes and makes homemade wine a couple of times a year....TDP has gotten a pretty good job at this whole hiring awesome people thing!!
