Laura Flores Shaw
Founder, White Paper Press
Laura Flores Shaw is the founder of White Paper Press, a think tank specializing in translating scientific research into terms that allows people to make informed decisions about their lives. She previously worked as a family therapist in the public school system where she realized her desire to work on the prevention rather than intervention side of mental health. That led her to reviving a failing Montessori school where she became passionate about creating environments that allow children to thrive in every way. In 2014, she retired from school administration to focus on advocating at a broader level for frameworks that can improve the lives of children and their families. She currently writes, speaks, and consults internationally on education, brain development, and parenting.
