Gold Award Recipient
Vice President/Financial Advisor
Leadership is multifaceted. It is the ability to inspire others while solving complex issues and leaving the world a better place.
Laura Sundt Eberly grew up in Memphis, Tennessee participating in the Girl Scout program as a Brownie and later as a Girl Scout. Like many of the great woman in the Committee of 100, Eberly thrived in the Girl Scout program and completed her Girl Scout leadership journey by earning her Gold Award. Little did Laura Eberly know that the skills she acquired while in Girl Scouting would help her in her professional life. After participating in the largest girl-led business and financial literacy program for girls, also known as the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Eberly went on to polish her business and management skills earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and later her CPA in Arizona. She currently is the Vice President/Financial Advisor for Merrill Lynch and continues to inspire others to set and reach their goals.
As a leader and a woman, Eberly knows the importance of strength in numbers, particular the power of women who unite for a common cause. As former First Lady Nancy Reagan once said, “Women are like tea bags, you never know how strong we are until you put us in hot water.”
