With 25 years of engineering and management experience, Laura has been involved in the design of aircraft engines, diapers, electric cars, as well as software systems at Hewlett Packard, Sales.com, and eBay.

As the CEO of Radtac US, Laura is focused on building the relationships, communities and capabilities to ignite and sustain a new world of work - with a ton of laughter, joy and collaboration along the way. Laura is an Agile instructor for the Continuing Education department at Stanford University, and holds a B.S. and an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech, as well as certifications as a Certified Scrum Professional, Certified ScrumMaster, Certified Scrum Product Owner, Certified Trainer of Training from the Back of the Room, and Certified Trainer and Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
