Tesler, Woody Mosten, and Sherri Goren Slovin, J.D., among others.
When she is not practicing law or taking care of her two children, Laura devotes her time and talents to the American Royal, the Kansas City Zoo, and the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri. She also enjoys running and traveling.
