Laura has joined West with great enthusiasm after spending nearly 20 years billing and accounting in various law firms throughout the East Bay. She is excited and feels up to the challenge of learning an entirely different industry. With her extensive knowledge of accounting principles along with various computerized systems, she has been able to successfully diversify her career into this new and creative world. She owes her training in accounting to her mother (also an accountant) who instilled and inspired a passion for puzzle solving. Laura can often be found battling family and friends in games of speed Scrabble.
Along with her interest in accounting, Laura is trained in classical viola performance and regularly performs in various musical theatre productions, orchestras, and chamber ensembles around the Bay Area. In many ways, music and math complement one another, so her two life interests intertwine beautifully.
In her spare time she loves to bake and cook, travel with her husband and dog, and play music with her friends.
