Meet The Staff – Laura: Activities and Student Support Officer

Hello everyone! I’m Laura and I’m the new Activities and Student Support Officer here at Lexis Byron Bay.


I’m from the UK but I first came to Australia 2 years ago as a backpacker. I had a great time travelling to places like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Noosa, the Whitsunday Islands, Tasmania and of course, Byron Bay! I came back to Australia earlier this year and I’m really enjoying living in Byron, it’s such a fun place to live and work.


In the past I’ve worked at an aquarium, a beach and a museum. I’ve also worked with language students, so I love meeting people from all over the world.

My hobbies include photography and anything to do with the beach – I spend most of my free time there. I also love to travel… so far I’ve been to France, Cyprus, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Italy, South Africa, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia. In the future I’d like to visit New Zealand and South America.


I’ll be based up at reception and running the activities, so come and say hello and introduce yourself when you see me at school or around town. I’m excited about getting to know you all and looking forward to helping you make the most of your time in Byron!
