A graduate of Miami University, Laura found her way to FVF through an unassuming connection between puppies & purpose. As a Delta Gamma in college, she worked on fundraising events & awareness campaigns for their philanthropy, ‘aid to the blind’. Because her grandmother suffered vision loss due to macular degeneration, Laura felt a direct connection to these philanthropic efforts, which prevails today. Since 2015, her family has volunteered as puppy raisers for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, raising & training future guide dogs. While volunteering with her 9 week old GEB puppy at the white cane walk for the Cleveland Sight Center, Laura met Dr. Huang & was soon introduced to FVF. Later, she attended the Cleveland Film Festival’s showing of the ‘Pick of the Litter’ with a 14 month old GEB puppy-in-training, meeting with the director & guide dog teams from the film. Educating people about the patient investment it takes to raise & train a pup to successfully become a guide, and the importance of honoring the unique rules when engaging with a team is a deep passion. For 27+ years, Laura enjoyed a successful career in the hospitality industry in sales leadership, marketing, and national sales training roles for Marriott, Maritz and hotel management companies across the Midwest and east coast. In this space, Laura also facilitated education & training for organizations about the important distinctions afforded to legitimate service animals teams. In her present role, Laura is dedicated to serving clients & organizations across NEO, as a senior business development & relationship manager for Sikich. One of the largest professional services firms in the US, Sikich provides a robust breadth of services & expertise across CPA, Technology, and Business Advisory services to help strengthen mid-market privately held companies & NFP organizations. Laura is delighted to support the work of FVF, helping promote its mission of sharing medical triumphs toward vision restoration through compelling film. Except for the parade of GEB puppies in training, Laura and her husband Dave are officially empty nesters in Hudson, OH, where they raised two incredible daughters.
