Laura Jontz grew up in rural Iowa where the population is mostly older. As a kid, she discovered that despite decades of difference in age, these women made pretty good friends. As she got older, she realized that they were so much more than friends.
From the event: Being Iowan
Laura Jontz loves Iowa. And Brussels sprouts. And Brussels sprouts grown in Iowa. She grew up in Bagley and attended UNI and Drake Law School. She has been a staff attorney at Iowa Legal Aid for nine years, representing low-income Iowans with various housing and family law issues. When the weather is nice, she motors around on her Yamaha scooter. She loves sharing stories with family and friends, preferably over coffee.
