“Laura helped me with my campaign--reviewing my campaign pieces, editing them, giving me feedback and suggestions, and making it all so much better. ON TOP OF THAT, they gave me encouragement and support, which was honestly just as valuable. This was the first time I've ever run for a political seat, and it was stressful and challenging and Laura really helped me feel better about this new and scary space I was entering. Bonus! I won my race!”
