For over 35 years, Laura has been committed to providing affordable housing and advocating for programs that help support and empower residents. Early in her career, Laura worked for several private affordable housing agencies in senior positions responsible for property management operations, maintenance, and capital improvements. She also served as General Counsel, representing the management company in court for landlord-tenant matters. Later, Laura left the private sector to work for the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (currently known as the Executive Office of Housing and Livable Communities (EOHLC)). For 12 years she was the Director for the Bureau of Housing Management in the Division of Public Housing. During that time she monitored, regulated, and funded 240 local housing authorities that provided housing for approximately 48,000 seniors, families, and people with disabilities. Prior to joining 2Life, Laura served as Assistant Executive Director at a local housing authority where she monitored the day-to-day operations and assisted with the implementation of several Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs, such as the Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Program and the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program.
Laura graduated from Georgetown University with a bachelor's degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Government. Later she earned her Juris Doctorate degree and passed the Massachusetts State Bar. She is currently licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
I am defiantly joyous in my belief that everyone deserves a decent, safe, place to live, a place to make memories, a place to call home. Every day I am committed to making a difference by supporting our residents in their homes and in the community.
