Laura is a wealth advisor working on the RWA Wealth Partners team in Chicago. She has over 20 years of experience as an advisor and enjoys helping clients align life goals with financial goals.
Laura is the daughter of two math professors, which inspired her belief that a good advisor is also a good teacher. Her goals are to educate clients about markets, risk, taxes and planning and to empower them to make the best decisions about their wealth.
She graduated with a B.S. in economics from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Laura has earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification and a Certified Private Wealth Advisor® certification through the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Laura is always up for adventure and is a world traveler. She has slept in a tent in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, dived with sharks off the coast of South Africa and steered a dog sled in Arctic Finland. When not working, Laura loves exploring urban Chicago on walks with her dog, Ruthie, and spending time with her large extended family. She enjoys art, interior design, watching Nordic noir, reading David Sedaris and running along the lakefront. Laura is also a mental health advocate and volunteers for NAMI Chicago.
