Laurel Aiello
Laurel Aiello has always called Northern Colorado home. A Fort Collins native, she enjoys long bike rides, tending to her garden, paddleboarding at Horsetooth Reservoir, camping and fishing in the mountains and listening to live music on a sunny downtown patio. She married her high school sweetheart in 2022 and is completely obsessed with her Great Pyrenees mix, Twyla. Laurel got her start in magazine writing at Denver Life Magazine and has spent many years writing for regional lifestyle publications, including AvidLifestyle Magazine and NOCO Style. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism and a minor in sociology from Colorado State University, where she got involved with student media and fell in love with the art of storytelling.
