Hi, I’m Laura Harap, a native New Yorker turned California Dreamer. What started out as a childhood fantasy of living in the City Of Angels turned into a reality following graduation from college. Having a dream and the tenacity to follow it and move across the country not only challenged my inner strength but my determination to make it on my own accord. With that same spirit and fortitude, 8 years later I am ready to take on a new city, in a new decade of life and grow my career to new heights. I’m excited to be back New York City; it’s been a while.
Over the years, I have been working in event management in the non-profit sector. Events for me are the balance between concept and execution, imagination and implementation. My intuition and creativity allow me to turn ideas into success stories. Working for non-profits has its challenges, but those challenges make you grow, make you quicker, make you smarter and leave you with a sense of gratification.
I like to think of myself as a storyteller, utilizing a high level of imagination, with a successful track record driving multiple event simultaneously from concept through fruition while managing all phases including logistics, technical production, talent management and financial planning. I look forward to taking these skill sets and applying them to a new job role.
