Combining her solid writing portfolio with her experience as an independent sales consultant, it comes as no surprise that Laura's passion is helping clients package the best words in the right expressions.
In her spare time, when she’s not dancing with her 3-year old, convincing her 1-year-old not to eat the flowers, or finding glitter in her hair from her little girl’s art projects, she enjoys blogging about her parenting adventures for a quickly growing Internet audience, and surprisingly is highly ranked among the top 25-50 mommy bloggers. If you’d like to visit her blog, send her an email. She prefers to keep her online blogging identity incognito due to a part irrational and part paranoid fear of Internet baby stalkers.
