Alumnae Spotlight showcases amazing Laurel women and the paths they have charted since graduation.
Whether they are doctors, designers, artists, authors, scientists, lawyers, teachers, entrepreneurs, engineers, pharmacists, or civic activists or volunteers, Laurel women inhabit nearly all careers and corners of the world helping to make it a better place.
Our alumnae and the journeys that they have taken speak to the essence of a Laurel education and what makes this School and the community of women who call it their own distinctive. This space highlights their fascinating lives and the mountains they continue to move.
If you would like to be featured in our Alumnae Spotlight, or know of an alumna who might, please email Megan Findling.
Mekala Krishnan ’01 is a museum content designer whose goal is to highlight the shared human experience and spark inspiration and connections across time and space. As a public historian and interpreter working at exhibition design firm Thinc Design, she constantly asks, “How can I transport, inspire or surprise someone who came thinking she or he was going to be bored? How can I make a subject relevant and meaningful to their lives?” After gaining confidence in her voice at Laurel, Mekala pursued subjects she loved (thanks to Mme. Andre and Mr. Connell!) and followed her passions into a field she didn’t even know existed when she was a Laurel student. She encourages others to stay true to what they love and to take the path less traveled.
