Team Members

Laura Stanley, Executive Director

Laura joined the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine in January 2010 as FMM’s first Executive Director. Laura’s professional experience is in corporate human resources, sales and marketing, yet when her eldest son was diagnosed in 2009 with a mitochondrial disease, she was desperate for answers, for hope, and for a way to accelerate action. Thus, the opportunity to transfer her corporate business skills to this emerging non-profit seemed like a perfect match.

Formerly, Laura had senior human resources leadership roles at EarthLink and an Atlanta based technology start-up, EzGov, Inc.  Her early career experience evolved in executive search with Korn/Ferry International and sales and marketing in the paper and packaging industries both in Paris, France and the southeastern U.S. Laura earned her International MBA from the University of South Carolina and Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien and holds a Bachelor of Arts from Newcomb College of Tulane University. Laura speaks fluent French and conversational Italian.
