About Laura

No child’s potential should be limited by where they are born, how they grow up, or the color of their skin. It is this belief that drives Laura’s work. At VIVA, Laura directs communications projects for collective impact initiatives, leading communications strategy development and overseeing creative execution and campaign management. Her expertise includes communications planning, brand strategy, digital strategy, and messaging and content development. Previously, Laura managed marketing and communications for a national healthcare association and worked in client services at a leading branding agency. She is also a former teacher and Teach For America corps member. An editor at heart, Laura wields her literal and metaphorical red pen to ask tough questions and hone powerful, change-making communications strategies and messages. Outside of work, Laura is probably busy planning her next trip and figuring out how to fit three kids, their toys, and a tent into her car.
