Locus founder Laura Burke uses the analytical approach she honed during her tenure at the Department of Justice to carry out her role as a Managing Partner. In this administrative entity of MPI, she acquires funding for training vessels and simulators, as well as negotiates contracts with a range of diverse marine industry stakeholders. Her diplomacy and strategic planning have fostered the steady growth and expansion of MPI.
Laura’s business acumen and interest in the maritime industry stem from her upbringing as the daughter of a career Naval submarine officer in the shipyard and military town of Newport News, Va. Her respect for our troops is reflected in her volunteer efforts at her local Veteran’s Association hospital where she teaches yoga working with veterans who suffer from PTSD.
