Laura has had a fascinating career from dropping out of law school and joining Bill Clinton's presidential campaign to then being a presidential appointee as he took the White House. After being unwilling to settle for someone else’s definition of success, she left her role at an executive search firm as their youngest Vice President to start her own wildly successful firm. She is a Washington Post Best Selling Author. Her last book, Limitless, came in second only to Michelle Obama’s book. Her new book Wonderhell drops today, April 4th!!
