At age 17, Laura had a profound experience while touring Europe with a US national band and choir. During a performance in Germany, where US and Russian armed forces were on the front lines of a potential global war, Laura realized the importance of peace on Earth and how peace needed to be lived first within each individual. From there, Laura went on to become a professional journalist, working at newspapers in Germany, Washington, DC, and Long Island, NY.


After getting a Master's Degree specializing in International Communications, she transitioned into management consulting in Boston, MA.  She has a broad background in management consulting, organizational development, and the design and delivery of strategic communication systems for some of the world’s largest and most successful corporations. She was an adjunct professor at Boston University's College of Communication, and she completed executive training in negotiation at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard University. She then synthesized all her experiences and founded GEI Global Leaders.
