Councillor Laurie Guerra
Meet Councillor Laurie Guerra.
I'm 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 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'm involved in my local church and the school where my children attend.
Eighteen 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 will graduate from university next year with an engineering degree.
