Typically, in small construction projects, a contractor is hired and the design is left to the homeowner or a draftsman, who usually have little experience dealing with building codes and space planning. With years of experience and expertise in both design and construction, Laura developed The Akeena Group in 2009 to provide homeowners a simplified, full-service approach to their home improvement projects. She joined WEV’s Thrive program in 2012 to help her grow the business. As a participant, she has developed a supportive network of business owners and received invaluable coaching and advice from her Business Development Specialist and WEV’s team of expert consultants. Laura is excited about her company’s future in meeting a unique need in her industry.
