I have worked with Laura for over five years. Laura has provided both the guide rails and the creative space to allow collaboration to flourish and strategic visions and plans to emerge–much to the benefit of the organization. She has implemented professional standards and faced difficult situations with poise and diplomacy. She sees to the development and growth of each and every staff member as much as she tends to the growth and development of the school.
I had the pleasure of working with Laura and her team as architect for their new Science and Music Lab at the Bright Water School in Seattle. Her careful and considered leadership and problem solving skills as well as her ability to envision solutions with the design team were paramount in the success of the project.
