Laura Burke

Partner, Administrative Oversight

In her role as Managing Partner, Locus founder Laura Burke oversees various executive functions including administering Maritime Pilots Institute, securing funding for equipment, creating and maintaining the budget, and negotiating contracts with a range of diverse marine industry stakeholders.

Laura’s business acumen and interest in the maritime industry stem from her upbringing as the daughter of a career Naval submarine officer in the shipyard and military town of Newport News, Virginia. Her respect for our troops is reflected in her volunteer efforts teaching yoga to vets in trauma recovery at her local Veteran’s Administration hospital.
