Laura is at her happiest walking all her dogs in the sun, whilst planning another trip to the Maldives with her husband. If Laura isn’t ensuring all invoices go out correctly, she is on Expedia.com!! She has a taste for banter but no comedy timing unfortunately! She has been a great addition to the team and is enjoying her time at Silverback.

I am so pleased to have had your guys on site today. They were very professional, and no job was too big or too small. They only stopped occasionally when I asked them to, as I felt they must need a break/drink but if I didn’t ask, I think they would have just carried on…… They were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful.”
