Laura Rice
LAURA RICE - Social Media Chair
Laura Rice, PHR, started college believing that she was going to be either an accountant or a hotel manager. After taking courses in both, she quickly realized this was not the path for her. The next semester, she took a course in Human Resources and was quickly hooked. After completing her Bachelor’s in Business and Certificate in Human Resources from Champlain College, Laura started her HR career as a recruiter. Over the years, Laura has worked as a Recruiter, Generalist, and Manager. Currently, Laura works as the Corporate Development Manager for Epic Wellness. When Laura isn’t working, you can usually find her playing outdoors or board games with her husband and two kids. Or in her craft room working on her scrapbook or latest crafting adventure.
