She was active in volleyball in high school and had multiple academic achievements.  She attended Mesa State University in Grand Junction, Colorado where she played volleyball until returning to Lubbock to enroll at Texas Tech University.  She graduated from Texas Tech with a Bachelor of Science. She married Jeramy Davies in 2007.  In 2010, Laura achieved her Ph.D. in Physical Therapy.  She coached for Guns Up Volleyball and served as our Club Director from September 2012 to September 2014. 

Laura was an inspirational physical therapist who helped athletes through injury recovery and was also a dedicated advocate for women’s health issues. She was an avid runner and participated in marathons and triathlons around Texas.  

Laura was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2014 and lost her brave battle on July 15, 2017.  

To honor Laura and celebrate her life, we are proud to offer a $2,000 college scholarship for our own graduating seniors, in her memory.
