Laura joined Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, Professional Association in 2016 at our Stratham, NH branch. In her role as Supervisor, Laura specializes in tax preparation and filing. Laura welcomes and thrives on the breakneck speed of tax management; she loves the challenge of always having something new to learn and master based on individual client need. She works on a part-time basis year round, extending her hours throughout the tax season to ensure her clients receive the professional accounting attention and expertise they deserve during what’s often their most chaotic time of year.

Laura graduated from Cornell University with a BA in Economics. She began her accounting career in 1994 and started at Cummings, Lamont & McNamee in 1998 as a Supervisor. During her time at Cummings, Lamont & McNamee, Laura worked closely with clients in a multitude of industries, helping them navigate through a diverse range of financial situations including business valuation and forensic accounting. Her almost 20 years of experience has made her an invaluable asset to the Leone, McDonnell and Roberts team where she continuously raises the bar on what clients can expect from an accounting professional.

When not navigating through the busy tax season push, Laura enjoys summers spent with her three teenage sons at her home in Stratham. An avid hiker and traveler, Laura strives to combine these passions as often as possible; she once hiked across England, from coast to coast!
