Laura interned with the outreach department at Third Way five years ago. A winding path through media, journalism, and the Hill brought her back to Third Way as the organization’s marketing advisor.

Prior to joining Third Way, Laura reported on tech policy and wrote people profiles for National Journal. Most recently, she was press secretary/digital media advisor for Rep. Jared Polis.

Although her father desperately tried to instill in her a practice of “everything in moderation,” it didn’t stick. She has an fervent enthusiasm for California, cookies, musicals, and moderate politics. She loathes cilantro, olives, and writing about herself.

Laura grew up in Los Altos, California and graduated from Wellesley College with a B.A. in American Studies.
