Member Spotlight “Power Couple” Edition – Mike & Laura Bagby

Our first Member Spotlight for September is all about Laura and Mike Bagby. Chances are, you know them – they are not only a staple at CFVB, but they are also active members of our local community and owners of Rio Coco Cafe. He’s the smart, focused patriarch of the Bagby clan; she’s the upbeat and sweet mom to all. They both have a zest for life that’s undeniable.

Rob and I have gotten to know the Bagbys well over the past year. Mike is very passionate, interesting and well-traveled and can carry on conversation for hours. He’s even authored a book and has another in the works. Laura is a great cook and is always full of life – she loves to dance and literally skips across the gym and smiles during the most brutal workouts. Her liveliness is infectious!

Mike and Laura live by example and make an impact on the world by funding schools in Nicaragua. On top of this, they have raised five amazing and talented children who are all part of CFVB.

If you know them, chances are you feel blessed to have them I’m your lives. We know we do!
