Dr. Laura Desveaux

Founder and Executive Director

Dr. Laura Desveaux is the Founder and Executive Director of Women Who Lead.

She is clinically trained as a physical therapist and has a PhD in health services research. Laura has always had a passion for leadership and mentoring and quickly realized that she can have the greatest impact by creating space for women to connect with one another. She believes the success of Women Who Lead is a product of a clear vision, mission-driven activities, and most importantly the collective impact of the brilliant and motivated women who engage.

When she’s not working or organizing events for Women Who Lead, Laura enjoys nachos, basketball, a glass of wine with friends, and spending time with her family. She is currently outnumbered by her husband, son, and dog (Archer the chocolate lab) , and will be welcoming a 4th boy to the mix in 2020.
