"With passion, eloquence and realness, Laura shares the story of her tour in Iraq and the struggles back home... advocating for all veterans and bringing light to the sacrifice of women."
~ Jackie Coffin, Montana PBS
"Laura is truly a magical public speaker! She presented and shared her military experiences in Iraq with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum for our quarterly Mess Night program. She really made her story come to life and had the audience captivated. One of the best speakers we have had to date."
~ Jen Carlson, Executive Director at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Foundation
"Laura and I connected when I read her book, Sirens: How to Pee Standing Up. In it, she shares about her deployment to Iraq and the PTSD she suffered after it. She has also been a guest on my podcast for two episodes and has written occasional guest posts for my blog. I love that I can rely on Laura for anything I need. She always meets deadlines and completes the task requested. I love that we have been able to support each other in our work and I'm excited for her as she starts her new venture."
