Laura Basballe

Financial Advisor

With financial planning experience at Focus Financial since 1997, Laura’s conversational style brings out the best in the discovery process. She believes strongly in serving her clients ethically and comprehensively.

Laura earned her B.S. degree in Psychology from Mankato State University (now Minnesota State University – Mankato) in 1990 and worked with young adults with special needs prior to becoming a financial advisor. Laura has served as a volunteer firefighter with the Apple Valley Fire Department since 2009 and has been president of her townhome association for nearly a decade.

When not in the office, Laura unplugs from technology by getting outdoors or trying new recipes.
