Lara attended both Campion and Hillel, before obtaining her degree in Psychology in London, England. From there, she began working in Behavioural Management in special needs schools, where she developed her love for facilitating growth and learning. Two years later when she moved back to Jamaica, her job in Project Management did not feed that burning passion, at which point she sought out joining the Get There team.

Lara’s experience gives her a unique skill in finding creative ways to facilitate a student’s learning, especially when they are facing certain difficulties. She loves the challenge of getting a student to embrace what they are learning and seek out knowledge. She has recently embarked on a new learning experience of her own by starting her Masers in Clinical mental Health Counseling.

Outside of Tutoring, you can find Lara running 5 & 10kms on the weekend, kickboxing, watching detective shows or at the beach!
