Biography of Laura Moore, owner of Pancha Enterprises LLC:
"In working with stakeholders on all aspects of the development process, I have often found that animosity and perceived animosity can threaten even the best projects. When that happens, everyone loses. Often, stakeholders are more on the same page than they realize. Bringing people together and asking the right questions can help us move forward to create better communities."
