An entrepreneur at heart, Laura founded her own law firm, which she ran for twenty years. She specialized in mediation, negotiation, business transfers and corporate reorganization, advising numerous business leaders.
Following her passions, Laura acquired Fumoir Grizzly in 2010 and went on to study business management at Université Laval. Never one to shy away from a challenge, she has always been involved in various committees aimed at improving the status of women entrepreneurs, including working with Inno-centre and Québec International.
Her commitment continues through a number of committees and boards of directors, including the CTAQ, the Agri-Food Export Group, the Consortium de recherche et innovations en bioprocédés industriels au Québec (CRIBIQ), Québec International and Investissement Québec’s regional development committee.
It’s no surprise that she has been honoured with the Coup de foudre affaires award from the Association Femmes Entrepreneures du Québec (2016), a nomination as an influential graduate of Université Laval (2017), the Hermès de carrière award from Université Laval’s Faculty of Business Administration for her exceptional career, social commitment, leadership and achievements in the field of management (2022), and the Femmes d’affaires du Québec award in the Entrepreneure d’impact – grande entreprise category (2022)!
As the proud head of Fumoir Grizzly and its Aliotech division, Laura demonstrates leadership, curiosity and a people-driven approach to both her team and her business partners. Her desire to offer quality, ethical and authentic products is echoed by a growing clientele looking for the best smoked fish products on the market.
