Laura Allen is the founder of Pencil, Inc. and lives in Dallas, Texas with her four year old boy/girl twins. She is a coffee nerd (read: addict) and loves spending time at White Rock Lake, watching the boats and feeding the ducks with the kids. She is a patron of the fine arts and her hobbies include making music, painting on occasion, photographing her kids and crochet. At home, you’ll usually find her reading the latest Washington Post article, skimming through Twitter, or watching MSNBC / CNN. As a business management major with a background in accounting, she takes a practical, wholistic approach to business, tax and accounting management strategies, often functioning as a translator between the business owner and their CPA. She has built a tech-driven business that is helping companies migrate to cloud-based systems that ensure maximum workflow efficiency, while maintaining data security and desired business and accounting standards. Her passion is truly to support others in their endeavors, and hopes to help them setup the frameworks and systems that will facilitate their dreams coming true. Ultimately, anyone can succeed in business if you have the right tools.

Her motto: “It's not the load that breaks you down - it's the way you carry it.”
