Lara graduated from the University of Georgia business school with an IT undergraduate degree and an MBA in marketing and entrepreneurship. Her love of technology began at an early age growing up in a “techy” family, thus making the technology path a natural fit. Later, she found her passion in marketing where her creative side could be expressed. Lara thrives when creating and enjoys a challenge.
She met her husband, Michael, at UGA and they were married in 2001. They have been blessed with 3 children that keep them very busy!
Working for several different software firms since 1997, Lara has a varied professional background. Her experience includes consulting, team management, client relationship management, consultant and client training, product management, software design, and developing and delivering business courses.
A native Georgian, Lara has large extended family and considers investing in those relationships a joy. She is passionate about family and faith. She and her family are active at the Buckhead campus of Northpoint Community Church.
