Laura is: a deeply curious person obsessed with people and their stories, an avid reader, a repeat romantic comedy movie-watcher, a gold hoop earrings superfan, and a traveler who loves to be awed by the magic of nature. She journeys through life alongside a loving partner, a practically-perfect pup, and an ever-growing tribe of beautiful people who help keep her grounded and inspired to help build a freer and more just world. Laura’s professional experiences include roles as a facilitator with the World in Conversation Project, an elementary school teacher in Chicago, and a project manager for Chicago Public Schools. Laura holds a BA in Communications from Penn State University, an M.Ed. in Elementary Education from Dominican University, and an MPP from Duke University.
