Laura’s academic credentials are as impressive as her professional trajectory. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (BBA) from the University of Toronto, an Executive Master in Human Resources Management from Cornell University and has further enriched her expertise with postgraduate credentials including Graduate Certificate in Strategic Human Resource Management from Harvard University, Senior Professional in Human Resources Management (SPHR) from Society of Human Resource Management, and a graduate of the Talent Acquisition Certificate Program from Academy to Innovate HR (AIHR).
Laura is known for her sharp wit and love of puzzles, often likening the process of talent acquisition to solving a complex jigsaw – each piece, or employee, is unique and essential to complete the picture. Outside of work, she enjoys hiking with her golden retriever, Max, and is an avid fan of mystery novels. She’s also a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur and is always on the hunt for the perfect cup of joe.
Reflecting on her tenure at P&C Global, Laura says, “When I look back at the growth we’ve achieved, both as a company and as individuals, I’m filled with immense pride. We’ve built something truly special here at P&C Global – a place where talent thrives, and where every individual contributes to our collective success. It’s been a journey of continuous learning and growth, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s not just about the numbers, although they are impressive, it’s about the people, the relationships, and the impact we’ve made. That’s what truly counts.”
