Laura Clark is a rare balance of professional knowledge, exemplary character, and human kindness. She genuinely invests her time in people, championing others. She gives her all to passion projects, arguing her motivations without alienating audiences. People just like and listen to her. In a room full of voices, she is a dynamic one without having to be the loudest. She can argue a point effectively and passionately and bring issues to a human level. She naturally possesses the qualities speakers and communicators strive to master. She educates herself before advocating, and listens intently before responding. Laura’s is a presence that elevates those around her.
