AG22 Joanne Avallon 228588

Laura has been a mediator with The Resolution Center since 2018 and joined the Board in 2022. As an instructional designer, she became interested in mediation after updating a basic mediation training program for a client, who then offered her the opportunity to participate in the training. Mediation was aligned with her passion for helping people and her background in communication. Since then, she has been mediating in small claims court and is expanding her skills to work with folks who are currently incarcerated as they prepare for re-entry into the community. In her professional life, Laura is a Leadership and Professional Development Consultant, focused on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. She is also a certified Executive Coach who works with clients in both non-profit and for-profit sectors.

Laura has a BA in Communication from Northeastern University, a Master’s in Business Communication from Emerson College, and a Graduate Certificate in Executive Coaching from William James College. She lives in Merrimac with her husband and four children (a son and triplet daughters).  She spends her free time exercising, relaxing with her chihuahuas, Phoebe and Spice, and baking gluten-free treats.
