Laura’s superhero cape is invisible but radiates sunshine. Well, most of the time. Laura has excellent planning and organization skills, a fearless commitment to creative results and innovative ideas. Man, does she love a good whiteboard. With a passion for research and writing and a positive outlook, she’s provided strategic leadership on companies from Duquesne Light Company to Smucker’s Natural Food and from the Pittsburgh Film Office to Nestlé USA. She brings an expansive perspective to Chemistry with her international experience, having worked at Edelman on brand experiences for Pedigree, the European Commission, and PepsiCo’s 7up and while living in Dublin, Ireland. She’s a LUMA Institute certified practitioner of Human-Centered Design to ensure that all briefs are understood and analyzed from a people-first perspective. When she’s not working, you’ll most likely encounter her trail running with a bunch of pups, exploring the benefits of mindfulness, or chowing down on a huge medium-rare burger and savoring a big glass of Malbec.
