About Laurie Swanson

CEO, Founder and a Woman in Tech.

FIRST, SHE WAS A CODER. Laurie studied business and information technology (IT) at the University of Texas. She started as a computer programmer before moving into IT recruiting and technology sales. She founded The Laso Corporation, a boutique Information Technology search firm, in 1995. Laso recently rebranded to InspiHER Tech.
