Hi, I 'm Laura!

I’m a writer, author, and community builder based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

I am American, originally from the suburbs of Seattle, Washington, USA. In 2016 as I was finalizing my divorce, I got the opportunity of a lifetime to move internationally for work. Since then, I moved from the US to Switzerland to Japan, and back to Switzerland. All with my cat, Minnie.

I wrote a book about this time in my life. It’s a memoir about how I built the international jet-setting life that I always wanted after my marriage and the American dream I was told to want, collapsed.

And it’s filled with plenty of dating stories that will make you laugh or cringe a little bit. I am currently seeing representation for my manuscript.

While finishing my book, I’m also building Dispatched Divorcée, an organization committed to helping women define, build, and thrive in the chapters of their lives after divorce.

If there’s a woman in your life who could use support, please share that link with her. No one needs to go through this alone.
