Hi. I'm Laura.
I am a spirited, authentic, hard-working professional. I love research and learning about new technologies - machine learning, natural language processing, automation, analytics, and tools that help with self-care + mental health. I’m a fierce advocate for women in tech and the power of building a community of mentors, cheerleaders and champions to drive progress.
I am a storyteller. Technologies are complex. Oftentimes, multi-disciplinary teams struggle to articulate the value of what they’re designing and building. I roll up my sleeves and partner with these teams to develop value propositions and write and present the story.
I am a listener, and it starts by building trust in relationships with people of all backgrounds and positions. I do this by asking the right questions. By empathizing and spending a day in the life of my customer or client, I gain an imaginative understanding of their problems and frustrations. This framework allows me to identify technologies, tools and processes that solve the customer’s problem and bring a team together to deliver a solution.
I seek win-win partnerships. I explore potential corporate partnership opportunities to identify the strengths of each party that will correspondingly fill in any gaps the two have as individuals parties.
