Laura capitalizes on her eight years as an Intelligence Officer working with top USAF executives and stakeholders, such as US Ambassadors, to forge a financial strategy with her clients, not just for them. She collaborates on their goals and insights in order to create a goal framework that both of them are motivated to achieve. Furthermore, Laura has a special emphasis on Impact Investing which, when appropriate, helps enable her clients to align their investments with both their financial as well as their environmental and social goals. She works with these clients to design and implement investment strategies that generate social and environmental impact alongside financial return. In conjunction with retirement planning strategies and the banking advantages of Bank of America, clients are able to invest in a way that is consistent with the causes and issues most important to them.
Originally from Minnesota, Laura graduated from the US Air Force Academy in 2011 with a BS in Political Science and earned a MA in Intelligence Studies from American Military University in 2016. She decided to make Alaska her home and enjoys fishing, hiking, softball, and all the other outdoor activities Alaska provides. She is currently on the Board of Directors for the Alaska World Affairs Council and serves as an Ambassador for the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce.
