When you meet Laura for the first time, you instantly feel welcome and notice her confidence. Motivated to provide an excellent workspace for everyone, she approaches her job with Hospitality in mind. She even brings homemade Banana Nut Bread to share… get a slice quick, it goes fast!
Business E Suites officially opened its doors in August 2020, during the pandemic. The building was under construction for about 24 months and during this time she worked diligently to create the atmosphere and community culture we are experiencing today.
New to the CoWorking and Office Space market, she took it upon herself to get well education by several trade associations and tours of other facilities across Houston and some out of state. What Laura said she learned was, “Our customers don’t need all the fancy lobbies, or furniture – all they want a nice place to work, friendly people, and plenty of coffee.” She also picked the Aviation theme for her husband Dave and quickly realized it was a brilliant idea, since it gave the space a luxury theme, without being fancy.
She and Dave have been married 21 years and have 4 grown children, two sons who work here – Colin & Scott. They live in Katy and have 2 dogs, Radar, and Roxie.
She grew up here in Houston, moved to Daytona Beach during High School, completed college at Belmont University in Nashville, TN, and started her career as a Concert Promoter for Texas A&M University. From there she continued in business and marketing her entire career. (Linked In)
Her strengths are Leadership, Collaboration, and Operations and it’s all done with a high level of Excellence.
When she’s not working, she volunteers at her church. She’s been a member of the Second Baptist West Praise Team as an Alto for over 20 years and teaches adult Bible Study every three weeks. Additionally, she and her friend Wanda have a comedy act called Second Act Sisters, where they sing to Ladies’ groups, original songs that poke fun at growing old. It’s quite funny!
If she has any advice for our readers, it would be, “Don’t Settle. Wait for what your want, it will be worth it. I don’t make a final decision until it “lights me up” and excites me. “Good enough” is not acceptable.”
