Laura is a firm believer that we are all happiest when we’re helping others. As the philanthropic program manager, she gets to work on projects that align clients’ and colleagues’ time and money with their unique values and passions. Connecting, learning, and taking action to make a difference in a meaningful way creates a feeling that we want to help all individuals and families experience. Through The Brighton Jones Richer Life Foundation, we’re making great strides to turn compassion into action. A great example is our Lemayian trips, where we travel abroad with groups to increase awareness about specific issues, develop strategic partnerships, and leave with a new perspective.
