    Meet the Speaker

    Laura Barr

    Laura Barr is a dynamic speaker and advocates for using the college application process to “launch citizens.” Her unique approach takes students on a meaningful journey of identity formation that helps them find their passion and purpose. Parents can assist with this process by transforming their mindset from “managing” their teens to “guiding” and “collaborating” with them. Through webinars, lunch and learns, and in-person engagements, Laura teaches parents how to maximize the college application process to produce responsible, independent individuals who thrive as young adults.

    Laura is concerned with supporting students’ overall well-being while getting them into great schools through a process that is simple, deliberate, and joyful. She loves sharing her knowledge and experience via speaking engagements.

    “While our children are still home with us, we must nourish them, provide a safe and nurturing shelter, love them for who they are and support their interests, and teach them the skills and values that will foster independence and prepare them to lead a meaningful, fulfilling adult life.”
