Laurel Clark
Membership Coordinator
Minnesota Society of CPAs

No stranger to the stage, Laurel started singing at the age of 4 with her parent's band. But as time went on, she realized the spotlight might be out of reach – who wants to be the next Britney Spears anyway. Now an avid planner, writer and perfectionist, Laurel is delighted to join the MNCPA Membership team, share her skills and help members shine!
