An Indiana native, Laura moved to Madison, Ala. in 2017 and decided it was the ideal time to start her own business, and nothing is sweeter in the south than sweet tea, hence, Sweet Tea Communications, LLC.

Laura brings more than 15 years of integrated communications knowledge to the table, with experience in public relations, media relations (both business-to-business and business-to-consumer), newsletter production, email marketing, writing, graphic design, political campaigns, strategic planning and nonprofit management. Her background includes working with Fortune 500 companies, all sizes of nonprofit organizations (501c3 and 501c6), and small and medium-sized businesses.

In addition to years of valuable work experiences, Laura earned her bachelor’s in journalism and master’s in public relations from Indiana University, and maintains her membership and accreditation in public relation (APR) with the Public Relations Society of America.

When she’s not working, Laura enjoys spending time with her beautiful family and exploring the sights around northern Alabama.
