Laura Schaefer

POSITION: Interactive Events Coordinator


I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio, and later graduated from the Ohio State University with a degree in International Studies. I relocated to NYC in 2012 for a job opportunity and attended New York University part-time where I earned my MBA in Finance and Global Business. My career with UBS brought me to Cincinnati last year. I cannot imagine a better way to engage with the community than through Give Back!

What excites me about 2017:

I am excited to help create an awesome experience for all of the volunteers who take time out of their days to participate in our events and make a difference in the community.

What makes GBC unique:

The people – Everyone is genuinely passionate about giving back to the community and engaging others to create an amazing experience for all.

First GBC Event:

2017 Leadership Retreat – I decided to go all in from the beginning!

Favorite GBC Event:

Interactive events, of course!

Why I got involved:

Being new to Cincinnati, I was looking for an opportunity to meet other young professionals and to get involved in the community. I looked into a few organizations, but I was instantly attracted to Give Back because it combined a variety of volunteer opportunities along with a fun social component.

Why others should get involved:

Give Back is such a diverse organization for a variety of interests. Whether you want to get your hands dirty, interact with kids and seniors, or volunteer across the world, Give Back has something for you.

Fun Fact:

I eat an apple every day (sometimes two).
