Welcome our Marketing Specialist, Laura!

Back to blog

We’ve got a new Oomple member onboard! A big welcome to Laura, who’s joined us as a Marketing Specialist.

She started her career with a start-up in mining/nanotechnology for 8 years in a Business Development and Marketing role. Laura then moved to London for 4 years, where she worked in Sales and Marketing, followed by a move back to Canada to work at another start-up tech company!

You know the drill… We’ve asked Laura some questions to get to know her more since she’s started with Oomple. Check out what she has to say.


Welcome Laura!


What excites you about joining Oomple?

I’m excited about the platform, product, culture, and people. It feels like a great fit and place where I can learn, grow and work alongside a great team!


What did you want to be when you were younger? 

Honestly, this probably changed every few weeks. For a long time, I wanted to be a spy because of the movie Harriet the Spy haha.



What song do you have completely memorized? 

A whole lot of 2000s and 90’s throwbacks (TLC, Ja Rule, Eminem, Spice Girls, and so many more!).


What shows are you currently binging? (Asking for a friend)

Right now, I’m binging The Boys- it’s sooo good, I definitely recommend.


What’s something most people don’t know about you? 

I ate squid in Korea that was STILL MOVING. Do not recommend.


Welcome Laura!


Walk us through your ideal weekend!

I love a mix of going out and relaxing. Dinner and drinks with friends – anything from game nights to dancing to movie nights, followed by a lazy Sunday with pizza while binging a show!


What quote do you live by? 

I’m a big Anthony Bourdain fan and I love this quote from him: 

As you move through this life and the world, you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life- and travel- leaves marks on you.


We hope you got a little insider scoop on our new team member and enjoyed getting to know Laura a bit more! Don’t be shy to connect with her on LinkedIn
