Laura London

Head Athletic Trainer and Strength Coach

Laura London joined the Brearley community in 2019, bringing with her over 12 years of experience working in sports performance and injury rehabilitation. Her athletic training career has been influenced by a lifelong love for sports and a commitment to promoting women’s athletics. Ms. London is Board of Certification (BOC) certified and licensed to practice athletic training in both New York and New Jersey. She is also a certified strength and conditioning specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and holds a G1 certification in Graston technique. Ms. London recognizes the disparities in access to strength training that women athletes face and is committed to teaching her athletes proper lifting techniques, employing evidence-based programming, and engaging them to have autonomy over their physical bodies and space.

A multisport athlete in high school, Ms. London fell in love with playing rugby while earning a BA at the University at Buffalo. After graduating in 2006, she went on to play with New York Rugby Club, winning three national championships with the team. Injuries led Ms. London to retire and helped her fully realize her desire to support other athletes through their recovery timelines. In 2015, she graduated from Seton Hall University with an MS in athletic training. She was honored at graduation with the Best All-Around Student Award as well as the Research Honors Award for her thesis, The Effects of Saddle Positioning on Joint Kinematics and Muscle Recruitment for Triathlon Cycling in the Aero Position.

Prior to her time at Brearley, Ms. London worked with professional athletes while employed by the NFL’s New York Giants and the WNBA’s New York Liberty. She has also worked in multiple privately owned physical therapy offices, where she was able to gain experience with diverse clinical cases, such as postsurgical patients, chronic neurological pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. Additionally, Ms. London has worked with college athletes at Columbia University, a member of the NCAA’s Division I Ivy League, and in high schools, most recently at the Spence School. While at the Spence School, Ms. London also served as the assistant athletic director and head squash coach. She was privileged to coach the squash team that went on to win the 2019 Head Squash National Championship (Division II), the 2019 AAIS Championship, and the 2019 NYSAIS Championship.
