Formerly a nurse, Laura Sygrove-Quickmire has MS which has affected her mobility and sight. After leading an active life, becoming a wheelchair user and losing her independence came as a great shock. She says: “I became very withdrawn and bitter and spent a long time lying in bed sulking.”
However, with the help of family and friends and the support of the MS Society and AbilityNet, Laura is now an enthusiastic computer-user with a zest for life that impresses all who meet her.
After obtaining a BSc Hons in Social Sciences with the Open University, and beginning an MSc in Social Research Methods, Laura’s recent endeavours have included a totally new departure into property development!
