Laura Bruce

Laura is from a beautiful island town in Northern Ireland. She moved to the bright lights of London for university then spent her 20s working in Compliance for an Investment Bank. She recently qualified as a lawyer, however relocating to DC and the arrival of her children created a welcome pause in her plans to practice law. You’ll find her hanging out in the playpark with her kids or running Parkrun on Saturday morning.
