Laura is an Italian mom living in the Bay Area. She currently works as a Linguist for AI applications, and she also has experience entertaining at kids’ parties and teaching Italian. With her daughter growing up far from Italy, she would like to build a community where Bay Area families with a connection to Italian language and culture can meet and grow together, and where kids can be exposed to all the beautiful things Italy has to offer!
