"I love helping clients achieve their goals and make their dreams come true."

Laura is passionate about helping clients make their financial lives come together.  Whether they need help beginning the retirement planning process, reducing debt, or looking to educate themselves on investments, Laura wants her clients to always feel comfortable working with her.

It’s all about teamwork.

Laura may have “fallen into” the financial world, but she quickly fell in love with her work.  After graduating from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Laura returned home to Rochester, NY to be close to her family.  As she was looking for work, a temp agency placed her at a financial firm and she was immediately captivated by the fast-paced world of finance.  A proficient problem solver, Laura also thrived on creating solutions for the challenges that clients faced with each stage of their lives.


Laura is proud to have started in the industry as an assistant and worked her way up through management to eventually become an advisor.  No stranger to hard work, Laura earned her MBA from the Bittner School of Business at St. John Fisher while working full time at Sage Rutty.  She has now been in the business for nearly 17 years, of which 15 have been spent with Sage Rutty.

When Laura is not helping clients realize their financial goals and dreams, she enjoys time with her husband, young son and their big, lovable lab. Her favorite thing to do is explore the public market, which she visits every Saturday with friends. In fact, Laura serves as the President for the Friends of the Public Market and co-chairs their Program Committee. She also serves as Vice President for the woman’s organization, Priceless Vessels, a diverse group designed for women by women to empower one another.
