Meet Councillor Laurie Guerra.

I am originally a “Vancouver-ite” and decided to make Surrey home 27 years ago. I currently reside in the Fleetwood area with my husband and five adult children.

After pursuing a professional dance, acting and modeling career in Vancouver, Los Angeles and Toronto, as well as touring worldwide promoting a televised fitness series, I settled in Surrey where I worked as a top-producing realtor, co-owner of a building company, and fitness and yoga instructor.

I am involved in my local church and along with my sister, help to take care of our aging parents. I enjoy Pilates and daily walks in beautiful Surrey Parks.

I am proud to have been chair of the Public Engagement Task Force.

Key Projects

Twenty years ago, at the age of five, my son was diagnosed with autism. Since then, I have been a director of the Autism Society of British Columbia (ASBC), chairing the Community Networking Committee through the ASBC and facilitating the Surrey Parent Support Group for the organization. I sat on the executive as Secretary for two terms, Vice-President for two terms and President for two terms.

I pride myself on being an advocate for science-based autism treatment as my son has reached best outcome from the treatment and is pursuing a master's degree in Mechatronic Systems Engineering.
