Laura joined Dairy MAX in February 2023 with 31 years of industry experience working with well-known food industry companies such as Nestlé, Schwan’s and Kellogg’s. She shares that the process of developing new business and relationships, paired with her love of food and nutrition, is what led her to this industry. Laura specifically came to Dairy MAX for the opportunity to share research-based programs, and knowledge she has gained in her career, to aid in the betterment of children’s health and nutrition. She enjoys spending time as a Master Wellness volunteer for the Collin County Extension and also serves as a judge for the State Fair and 4-H food contest. When she isn’t volunteering, she can be found at the pool swimming laps or in her kitchen cooking. Laura and her husband Scott have two sons, Sam and Will.
