Laura LaVanne

Administrative Assistant

Laura started her career at the very young age of 16 working as a bank teller.  Since she enjoyed helping people keep track of their money so much, she decided to major in Finance at the University of Illinois.  This was followed by many years of working in the banking, accounting, and insurance industries in various roles including client servicing, training and underwriting.

When Bill LaVanne decided to start his own financial planning business, Laura was a natural fit to become his administrative assistant and help manage with the daily operations of the office. They have been working together since 1998 in the securities industry.    She has loved getting to know the clients and their families and continues to enjoy helping them with their financial needs. 

Laura grew up in the Chicagoland area and continues to reside there with her husband.  Together they have 3 children, 3 grandchildren and a one crazy little dog.  In her spare time, you'll find her walking and reading (but not both at the same time)!
