About The Founder

Laura Renner, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, founded Freedom Makers out of a passion to help small business owners and military families. As a small business owner herself, she understands the stress and challenges that come with being a business owner and also the difficulties that military spouses have in building a career when they may be transferred at a moment’s notice. As someone recently told Laura, “… this is in alignment with your soul and the universe.” By founding Freedom Makers, Laura is able to create freedom for business owners AND military spouses.
Laura graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy with a Bachelor’s of Science in English and a minor in Chinese-Mandarin. She served as a Public Affairs Officer before leaving the Air Force to earn an International MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. She has worked for nearly fifteen years dealing directly with people in foreign and public relations, education and human resources. Throughout her career, she has studied people — what drives us, what inspires us and knows how to help people reach their potential. When she’s not working to grow Freedom Makers, she very much enjoys traveling, running, and having story-worthy adventures!
