In May 2018, Laura was part of the executive team that launched Guidehouse, a spin-off of PwC Public Sector backed by private equity firm, Veritas.

As a woman who has spent a career in technology, I value the opportunity to share my experiences and challenges in building successful technology businesses with other executives, minorities, entrepreneurs, and those building their technical and creative skills. I have often been the only woman in the room, on a technology team, or in a leadership position in a technology company. I have a proven track record in building diverse, successful, and empowered teams that tackle some of society’s toughest issues. I welcome the opportunity to connect with others looking to build a technology practice or company that reflects the diversity of our society and the clients they serve. I also welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your career goals, teaming opportunities with your company, and career opportunities with Guidehouse.
