Member Spotlight

Laura Moore, president, LKTM Consulting Group

1. What made you decide to get into PR? I began my career as a journalist for a financial planning magazine. I worked extensively with PR teams to get story clearance and gain access to interview subjects. I discovered pretty quickly that the PR teams were helping to craft the message and I was simply asking questions. It seemed much more interesting to be on the PR side of the equation, so I moved into PR with my next career move.

2. Who (or what) introduced you to PRSA Dallas and how long have you been a part of the chapter? I was a member of PRSSA when I was a student at Texas A&M – Commerce. I attended Dallas and Houston PRSA meetings as a student and was impressed with the camaraderie among members. I recently renewed my membership to PRSA after taking a hiatus to be involved with the Arthur W. Page Society. I am rekindling relationships and making new friends on the local level, which is great.

3. What is one piece of advice you would give new PRSA Dallas members and prospective members? Get involved. There are plenty of opportunities to serve on or lead a committee. It’s a great way to meet new people and keep abreast of the PR scene in Dallas.

4. What is your favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant? (Don't forget to tell us where it is located.) I don’t know that I would call it a hole-in-the-wall ,but one of my favorite Tex-Mex fixes is Tupinamba Café located at Central Expressway and Walnut Hill Lane. My husband and I have been going there for decades, first when it was across from Bachman Lake, then when it moved to Inwood Road near the Galleria.Earlier this year the restaurant moved to its new location. We dined there on the last night of operation at Inwood and the first night it opened at the new Central Expressway location. Beware – owner Eddie Dominguez is a huge Aggie.

5. Who is your role model? My mother was my role model. She was a single parent who put herself through college while working full-time and raising two kids. It’s hard enough to be a single parent, or to attend college, or to raise two kids. She had an incredible work ethic that made a huge difference in my life.
