Laura delivers virtually through your screens with her same unforgettable on-stage enthusiasm, motivation and energy creating a live connection to your message, mission and program.

Laura was practically born in front of a camera. As a result, the virtual space feels like home, and she makes everyone watching feel the same way. Laura grew up in her father’s award-winning photography studio, surrounded by lights and cameras. Prior to becoming White House Director of Events, she was named White House Director of Television, where she created the connection between a President and the world by embracing technology and its ability to bring people together. She’s been in front of the camera, as a television commentator, since 2001, routinely looking into a single lens and addressing millions of viewers at a time, making each person feel a connection in that moment. She’ll do the same for you as an Emcee or Keynote at your next virtual program.
