Meet Laura - 10 Questions

January 7, 2015

Name: Laura Istead

Job Title at TWV: Program and Communications Coordinator

Years at TWV: 4

Favourite Bike: Every bike that a kid earns at Bike Club

Favourite Travel Destination: Anywhere by the ocean


Favourite thing about TWV: My first favourite thing is Bike Graduation and giving bikes to great kids who have worked hard to earn them. Second favourite thing is that I get to come to work at an amazing place with amazing people every single day.

When I’m not at TWV, I can often be found… Hanging out with whales, baking in my kitchen, at a Stampeders Football game, taking pictures in Southern Alberta or volunteering at a great Calgary charity.

Best Bike Tip: Keep that helmet on your head. Your brain does everything for you and you should do everything to protect it. It’s not going to save your life on the handlebars!

Who was your role model growing up? My parents and grandparents

Best Advice Received: Everyone comes in and out of your life for a reason. Find the lesson they are here to teach you.

TWV should plan a bike trip to… Switzerland (I got the chance to bike Switzerland when I was 10… amazing!)

Favourite Quote: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagine.” – Henry David Thoreau
