Lara

Franchise Owner
Lara is a CPA from Sydney, Australia. She is passionate about Making Math Make Sense. She met her St Louis born husband at graduate school in Arizona in 2001. They grew their family in Northern Virginia where she found Mathnasium when their child was in Kindergarten and greatly appreciated the Mathnasium Method of teaching. In 2019 they 'moved home' to St Louis so that their 9 yr old could be closer to grandparents and cousins. (Yes, amazing timing in retrospect!) Lara hand-picked her Brother-in-Law, a trained teacher, to be her Center Director.
