Meet the Maker | Sailor's Sister
Hi, I’m Laura Kate! I am a wife, mom of four, and a sailor’s sister. I’m also a former RN and worked in the hospital setting for ten years. After the chaos of the pandemic, I decided to take a step back from the healthcare world. Around the same time, my brother shared he was enlisting in the United States Navy. As I’ve grown in my craft and design, I decided to take a small leap of faith and open an Etsy shop. Over time my pieces were naturally inspired by my brother’s military path. He was a successful finance guy who decided he had a greater purpose in life and wanted to serve his country… how could I not be inspired by that?! So in this journey of life and by my brother’s example, I’m learning to embrace the nudges, take risks, and never quit.
