Laura is a take-charge person who is able to bring unique ideas to any problem and communicate her ideas to others. It is not often that you can find a designer that not only does exceptional design work, but also does so quite often in a very short timeframe. Laura could always be counted on to be one step ahead with each of her projects, proactively reviewing each of her designs for aesthetics, as well as for marketing effectiveness. Laura always brings an upbeat air to the room.
