Laura received her MS in Engineering from California Polytechnic State University. After graduating she spent three years as a Human Resources software consultant for Deloitte Consulting.
When Laura entered law school at Georgetown she did so wanting to explore all areas of law, but was quickly drawn to IP. Then as a Summer Associate at Sidley Austin LLP in Washington DC and San Francisco, Laura’s passion for IP law was solidified as well as her interest in cybersecurity and privacy.
Laura is committed to community activities that advance women in the STEM fields. She spent 9 years volunteering with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and served as the President of the Cal Poly Collegiate section.
ChIPs is thrilled to offer Laura the first ever scholarship in honor of the woman who dedicated herself to the advancing women in tech, law and policy.
