Laura enthusiastically markets the Beck Partners service lines as Marketing Manager. She began her professional career in Chicago where she worked with Am100 and mid-size law firms as a paralegal and business development professional. In those roles, she learned the importance of executing objectives quickly and with attention to detail. She was often called on to collect complex data and re-present it in in a clear and concise manner to highly educated professionals.
In her current role as Marketing Manager, Laura develops and promotes high quality, innovative marketing strategies for Beck Partners’ commercial real estate, insurance, and property management services. She ensures that each client’s individualized needs are met in a timely manner and continuously focuses on expanding Beck Partners’ breadth of contacts on national, regional and local levels within key industries impacting clients.

Family & Hobbies
As a native Midwesterner, Laura appreciates deep dish Chicago-style pizza and does not miss the snow, ice and freezing temperatures of her childhood. She relocated to Pensacola in 2016 and is embracing the Gulf Coast lifestyle with her husband and three children. A colleague once told Laura that the best investment you can make is in real estate and Laura wholeheartedly agrees, especially if that real estate is in the greater Gulf Coast. When she has a spare moment, she enjoys reading, cheering for her husband’s marathons, yoga, exploring the restaurant scene, paddle boarding and spending time with her husband, three children, and shitzu, Teddy.
