5 Minutes with Laura Ann, Princeton Alumna

We were so excited to get to know Laura Ann, a Princeton alumna and talented artist. She embodies the creative spirit that we value so much here at KYLE CAVAN. We are thrilled to have her as part of the #CavanCrew. Read more about Laura Ann and her time spent at Princeton. Shop the Princeton Collection 

How did your time at Princeton influence your life and where you are today?

At Princeton, I was instilled with a strong value of serving others (from the university motto: "Princeton in the nation’s service and the service of humanity”). I was inspired to dream big and not let challenges stop me. I was taught to never stop learning. I made friendships that will last a lifetime. I found faith through the 9pm services in the campus chapel with the booming organ in the soaring Gothic arches. I met my future husband in art history class. We got engaged at our 4th Reunion and married in the Princeton Chapel a year later.

Who inspires you most and why?

My family. My parents and grandparents have set an excellent example of using their various talents in work that serves others, both for their families and their communities. They have shared deep love and strong values with our family that I am inspired to pass down to my own. My husband and son inspire me every day, bringing joy and laughter to our work and play.

Princeton Alumnus that you most admire & why?

Michelle Obama, Class of 1985, who came to fame as First Lady but has had so much personal and professional success in her own right. I particularly admire the work she did as "Mom-in-Chief," launching the Let's Move program to promote healthy eating and physical activity habits for American children.

If you could give one piece of advice to the Princeton Class of 2018, what would it be?

Finding the right career path might be a process - be patient, open-minded, and grateful for experiences that let one door lead to the next. Working with good people can make all the difference. The balance of work and life's a journey - you might have all you wish to experience over a lifetime, but not all at the same time.
