Laura’s passion lies at the intersection of leadership development and business strategy. Her story?

Her expertise has been shared in the media for outlets like Huffington Post, US News & World Report and Wall Street Journal MarketWatch (talking about Taylor Swift no doubt). She strives to live an interesting life; the above was accomplished in the spirit of “Do one thing every day that scares you.”
