Laura founded Jonas Paul Eyewear with her husband Ben in 2013 shortly after her first child, Jonas, was born with a rare-eye condition (Jonas has had a total of 21 eye surgeries). Laura decided to leave her career to launch Jonas Paul Eyewear with the mission of helping children feel beautiful in their glasses while at the same time providing sight to children in need with every purchase. Since its founding, the company has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, and NBC Today Show, and has garnered numerous awards for its social responsibility and design. Laura is a dedicated wife and mother to Jonas (4 yrs) and Sophie (2 yrs) and lives in Grand Rapids, MI. When she's not innovating for Jonas Paul Eyewear, she enjoys Netflix bingeing, cooking, and participating in her multiple clubs (book, podcast and dinner)!
