Of Puerto Rican ancestry, Laurie is a daughter of Wanda and Anthony Hernandez, and spent her childhood in her hometown with her siblings, Marcus, and Jelysa.
As early as 2012, Laurie began competing at a national level, taking part in the US Classics, and finishing 11th, but that was good enough for her to qualify for the National Championships held in St. Louis, where she ended 21st following the two-day competition.
The following year, Laurie took part in the WOGA Classic, and in the all-around discipline finished second, then in June she was a part of the American Classic event held in Huntsville, Texas – she won the floor exercise, finished third on the balance beam and vault, and so was second in the all-around. Laurie was gradually improving and in September 2013 she won the bronze medal in the all-around at the Junior Japan International held in Yokohama, then at the International Junior Mexican Cup in Acapulco, she won the gold medal with the US team, with Veronica Hults and Emily Gaskins. 2014 wasn’t so good for Laurie, as she was out of competition for a large part of the year due to several injuries.
She returned to gymnastics in 2014, winning gold medals in the US Classics, Japan Junior International and City of Jesolo Trophy in junior competition. The following year, young Laurie entered her debut event as a professional – the City of Jesolo Trophy – and won her first bronze medal in the all-around, while also took home a silver medal on the vault and her first gold medal on balance beam.
The next event was the Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championship held in Everett, Washington, and although helped the US team won the third place, she wasn’t given a medal, as the rules only allows two gymnasts per country to be awarded a medal. The same year at the National Championships she took home the bronze medal in all four categories, and then participated at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, winning the team gold medal, and a silver on the balance beam, only 133 points behind the winner Sanne Wevers of the Netherlands.
Aside from gymnastics, Laurie also participated in the popular show “Dancing with the Stars” in 2016, winning the competition paired with professional dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy, marking the end of a successful year for Laurie.
Most recently, Laurie became an author, publishing her first book “I Got This: To Gold and Beyond”, on the 24th January 2017, the sales of which have added a considerable amount to her net worth – just a week after publication, her book entered The New York Times Bestseller List.
When it comes to her personal life, Laurie has been primarily focused on her career, and apparently hasn’t had time yet for dating, so remains single until the present day.
