Laura was born and raised in Sterling, Colorado and moved to Polson in 1990 where she met her love of her life, Shawn Burland, and they raised two amazing children, Shawntaya and Blaise Burland. Laura has been in the banking business for 23 years and is currently a universal banker at Valley Bank of Polson. Being involved in the community is an important aspect in Laura’s Life. She has helped serve as a chamber ambassador, board member of the Festival of Trees, and helped participate and organize the Valley Banks Scholarship Program for local high school seniors. As well as helping out her community members, she is always willing to help a neighbor or an elder in need. If she’s not in the community, Laura loves to spend time on the beautiful waters of Flathead Lake or hit the slopes of Big Mountain. Laura is blessed that she has been able to call Polson home and it has been a great place to raise a family and she looks forward to continuing to serve her community with the Polson Chamber of Commerce.
