I have known Laura for many years and can attest to her outstanding character and integrity. Laura is honest, loyal, and committed to helping people. Over the years, I have seen Laura volunteer for numerous charitable causes and community events, and she is always ready to help and to provide great problem-solving ideas. Though Laura is very hard-working and always gets the job done, she has the unique ability to understand when it’s best to get others involved – and she does it. Laura’s friendly nature draws people and gives her the unique ability to engage and motivate others. Professionally, I have worked with Laura on a number of funding projects to help local youth-support projects, including writing Federal grant proposals. Laura’s attention to detail and her ability to remember the “big picture” make it easy to work collaboratively with her – which was especially important since we lived in different states and have had to do all our work remotely. I recall one grant proposal that we wrote together that was extremely time consuming and yet had a short submission time. Laura always maintained a pleasant professional attitude, and looked for solutions rather than problems. She is extremely dedicated and trustworthy, hard-working, and efficient. It is a pleasure to work with Laura, and she would be an asset to any company.
