Alumnae Spotlight is a blog that showcases amazing Laurel women and the paths they have charted since graduation.
Whether entrepreneurs, doctors, scientists, teachers, designers, artists, engineers, authors, lawyers, pharmacists, 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.
