Laura Palmer

Laura PalmerLaura was raised in a military family and had the good fortune of travelling the world with her Air Force family.  Never living more than three years in one place, her early years included homes in:  Japan; France (and travels throughout Europe and Middle East); Philippines and Thailand; Washington, D.C.; Colorado, Texas, and South Carolina.

Laura's exposure to the South was limited growing up.  Her decision to attend Auburn was influenced by both parents being raised in this region.

At Auburn, she was involved in many campus activities and found the friendliness of the campus a strong attribute.  Though she graduated in Foreign Languages, her business career took her in an entirely different direction - the financial services world.  A good liberal arts, education, again, can translate into all sorts of career paths!

She is currently a Senior Vice President at SunTrust Bank in Private Wealth Management.
