When Laura joined Hellam Varon for the tax season in 2007, she wasn't really looking for a permanent job. But Hellam Varon immediately recognized the value she brought to the firm and coaxed her into accepting a permanent, part-time position. Over the years, Laura has contributed to the success of each tax season as a valued member of the administrative team. "I appreciate the culture at Hellam Varon. It's a friendly atmosphere and people are kind to each other. Maybe that's why there's not the turnover in staff you see at other firms", Laura comments.
Laura graduated from Texas A & M with a degree in marine science, but life led her away from a career studying marine environments. She feels a strong calling for charitable work. While much of her spare time has included volunteering related to her children's schools and activities, she is finding a shift occuring to more of a charitable focus as her son and daughter have grown.
Of course, family remains Laura's first priority. She and her husband and two children enjoy traveling, especially if the destination includes a warm, sunny beach. New Zealand, Puerto Rico and an immersion trip to Paris for a month have all been part of the family travels. Hiking and sailing are also favorite activities, although Laura's idea of fun camping is bedding down at a Hilton.
With such a focus on creating close family dynamics, it's no wonder Laura fits into the Hellam Varon family so well!
