Laura joined Deschutes in 2008 as an Investment Advisor, bringing our clients more than 20 years of financial services industry experience. Her expertise ranges from individual wealth management to retirement planning, allowing her to make a difference for all of our individual clients.
Her clients tend to reflect Laura’s own personality. She often works with creative, entrepreneurial people and businesses that operate with empathy and open communication. In fact, learning about what makes her clients “tick” is a major component in how she serves them. Understanding their goals and values gives Laura a framework on which she bases financial planning recommendations. Her goal? To give people confidence that their financial and life and investments align, allowing them to spend time doing what they love to do.
Because she loves what she does, Laura brings excellent service and meaningful relationships to her clients. Her enthusiasm extends the community, too, supporting organizations that focus on children and the arts. Among her current community service activities are participation on the Native American Youth and Family Center Fundraising Committee; the Red Lodge Transitions program; the Native America Art Council Portland Art Museum; and the University Club of Portland.
A third-generation Oregonian who has long been a part of Portland, Laura enjoys welcoming newcomers and connecting them with others she’s met along the way.
Before joining Deschutes, Laura worked for Harland Financial Solutions, West Coast Bank, and a private environmental company.
