I call Laura my secret weapon. She unleashed me upon the world with her positive energy, her lack of fear, and her ability to get things done. She opened doors for me that I never imagined could be opened. In just over two years, we have accomplished a great deal together. And to top it off, she is a wonderful person and a delight to work with.

There is little doubt that Dr. Laura Henkel has established herself as one of the premier cultural arts leaders in Las Vegas. I have had the honor of meeting Dr. Laura Henkel shortly after she moved to Las Vegas (2008). Since that time, we have travelled the state together and have had long conversations about the state-of-the-arts in Las Vegas and beyond. I have also had the pleasure of working with Dr. Henkel on her highly acclaimed 12 Inches of Sin international art exhibition and festival. Since that time, we have become close confidants and together we share a vision for the arts in Southern Nevada that will only propel our fabulous and radiant golden city to heights unimaginable.

I would like to take a moment to tell you about my previous PR agent, Laura. She was a great help not only for me but for my artwork as well. She would take the time to reach out to different art galleries, to showcase my masterpieces. With her hard work, her positivity, and ambition it helped me to accomplish my goals. I have full confidence in her work! I am certain she can fulfill any task that is given to her!
Dr. Laura Henkel developed a first-rate educational component and established collaborations with such educational institutions as the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, serving as both a learning facility and public resource. She also developed an effective visitor-outreach program that brought international attention. In addition, she conceived, planned, built, and curated many art exhibits and events that were well attended and well covered in local and national media. Laura’s commitment, connections, and vision, I believe, are invaluable.

AURORE GIGUETExecutive Director, Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science and Art
Laura started out as a professional colleague over 15 years ago and quickly became a trusted friend. We've worked together several times through the years and I always appreciate the fact that Laura is an excellent communicator, even on complex projects that involve many different people and perspectives. She is both accessible and respectful, and always addresses my concerns in a way that leaves me feeling uplifted. She is especially good at facilitating the successful completion of projects that require input from multiple disciplines and perspectives because she is quick to identify core issues and has the knowledge base required to address the needs of many. This makes her an invaluable project leader and excellent consultant. She also really loves her work and it shows in how caring she is towards her artists and business clients. I am grateful for Laura's assistance with my own special project right now and look forward to our meetings because she always leave me feeling uplifted and inspired. I highly recommend Laura for businesses both small and large as she has the knowledge and expertise to turn dreams into reality and to drive complex projects to fruition.
