With over two decades on the client side and in advertising and marketing agencies as an executive leader, Laura pivoted her career into Learning & Development. 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.
