Laura Vowles

Executive Assistant

Before I came to Xinova, I spent time over 25 years working as an Executive Assistant in numerous fields—maritime, non-profit, general contracting, startups—you name it, I did it.  All these years in different fields, I found myself drawn to diverse teams who are trying to make a difference. 

Ultimately, the opportunity to make an impact is what drew me to Xinova. I am inspired by the creative and collaborative environment at Xinova.  Working around people who are passionate about their work is energizing.

If I am not at the office or cheering on the Seahawks, you can find me volunteering with my two therapy dogs within senior communities.
