SharketteCon 2017 Speaker
Associate at Vela Wood PC
Lara combines her financial acumen, passion for entrepreneurship, and legal skill set to help businesses achieve their goals.
A Texas transplant from Minnesota, Lara first came to the Lone Star state to attend Southern Methodist University, where she double majored in Finance and Spanish. After graduating, she became a private equity analyst for Lehman Brothers.
Having a first-row seat to the largest bankruptcy in history spurred Lara to attend law school at the University of Texas. She feels incredibly grateful to have landed at her dream firm, Vela Wood PC, where she practices in the transactional division.
Lara loves DFW’s warm weather, southern hospitality, and strong business environment, and embraces the challenge of working full-time while having two children under the age of two.
