Give Back Cincinnati

Laura Schaefer

POSITION: Strategic Improvements Director


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 in 2015. I cannot imagine a better way to engage with the community than through Give Back!

Why I got involved with GBC:

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.

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!

What excites me about 2019:

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.

Fun Fact:

I eat an apple every day (sometimes two).
