About Laura Elizabeth
Hi there, thanks for checking out my blog! I have spent most of my adult life blogging and involved in social media, but this is my official blog page! I am a graduate of the University of Texas-Pan American and love all things public relations, social media and pop culture.
Unlike most lifestyle bloggers, I'm going to get real. I'm going to share personal experiences, heartache, grieving and what happens when things don't turn out picture perfect. Read on for my adventures in San Antonio, my love of fashion and my passion for politics and public relations.
I'm also a former political activist. You may know me from my days as the Senior Vice Chairman of the Young Conservatives of Texas. I stay involved as much as I can and very strongly believe in informing and engaging voters, especially young ones, to get out and vote!
I am currently the City of San Antonio's Communications Strategist, where I work on really cool campaigns like SASpeakUp. Prior to my return to the public sector, I was a public affairs account supervisor for KGBTexas .communications, some of my clients included Walmart, Exelon & Annova LNG, the City of San Antonio, Abengoa, Martin Marietta, Lone Star Rail, IBC Bank and many others. Prior to agency life, I worked as the Marketing Specialist for the San Antonio Economic Development Department. I'm a proud graduate of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's Latina Leadership Institute and Alex Briseño Leadership Development Program. In 2015, Red Alert Politics named me to their 30 Under 30 List.
I'm a native of McAllen and loved working at the City of McAllen’s Public Information Office, where I maintained the arts and entertainment website ExploreMcAllen.com. I was even awarded the 2011 Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers Awards for Best Website, www.McAllen.net, and Best Use of Social Media for www.ExploreMcAllen.com.
I am a pet parent to three rescues: a calico cat Chloe, a sweet pup named Juliet and a cuddly tabby cat Bohannon. I own lots of shoes, drive a red Mini Cooper and have a pretty fabulous life.
