For Laura, it is important to be a part of something bigger than herself, and to give back to the community. As Chair of the Board of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, she focused her leadership on helping shape the regional vision. This was achieved mainly through the power of communication: Speeches, Political Advocacy, Op-Ed’s and Strategic Meetings with leaders region-wide. Her main efforts centered around state infrastructure funding and the removal of the Confederate flag from our Statehouse grounds, both of which were successful through strong teamwork.
