When not designing and art directing, Laura can be found working on her daily drawing project, which focuses on social and mental health issues. She also offers a monthly workshop for women called Ladies Draw x Design Night for women in the design industry to come together and make art, connect and lift each other up. Laura recently ran a program at Round Rock High School teaching design thinking and collaborated with members of the IBM Design team to create programming to bring design thinking training to students in underserved communities nationwide.
