For almost ten years, Laura ran the public-facing learning academy for Duarte—a communications firm specializing in presentations. As the daughter of an elementary school teacher, Laura discovered her unrequited love for teaching at Duarte. New to the HR world, but not new to executive leadership, communications and L&D, Laura’s most recent gig is on the People Team with Malwarebytes.
