Laura has most recently become the Community Opinion Editor at the San Diego Union Tribune and is focusing her efforts there on bringing diverse voices and viewpoints to this local media establishment’s narrative and coverage of local, national and international news. 

Laura is passionate about the power of storytelling to inform, educate, change opinions and form coalitions and communities around building awareness and creating change locally, nationally and across the world.
