Laura's journey of personal and professional growth spans from the late 1980's to early 2005, at which time she realized, there is something more for her.
In early 1990, Laura began a women's outreach program entitled "Ladies in Power", where she created a series of educational workshops that highlighted the internal and external power that women posse. The workshops created a space for women to be vulnerable, cleansing of their toxic past, while developing a support system to transform to the empowered women they desired to be.
This journey continued when Laura decided to further her education, which would also strengthened her desires to expand the outreach to women and their families in a philanthropic endeavor.
