Laura joined the Association in March 2020 as IWA Leadership Engagement Officer which involves working with the IWA Young Water Professional network and chapters.
Before joining IWA Laura had been working in the water industry for around 3 years. Her career in water started at Waterwise (a water efficiency NGO based in the UK) during a placement year as part of her Geography degree at the University of Plymouth which is where her passion for water began.
Following this, she then worked for a water retailer in the open water market (The Water Retail Company) firstly as their Project Analyst and then Key Account Manager. Her most recent role of Key Account Manager at The Water Retail Company involved managing key business customer’s accounts including their billing and queries regarding their water supplies. Laura’s key interests in the water sector are around water efficiency and using this as a tool for tackling climate change as well as behaviour change in relation to water use.
