Laura is an expert in managing unique individual solutions for a variety of clients while never missing a beat.  
When Laura isn’t conducting research at Vault, she enjoys exploring new places by traveling and hiking. Laura’s family are also hard-core beach-goers and even the cold can’t keep them from frequent trips to their favorite coastal cottage in Delaware.

She has continued her education by attaining the Insights Professional Certification following her completion of the Principles of Market Research course at the University of Georgia.
