Come say hello to the AIAOC Women in Architecture Committee on June 1st and meet Orange County Architect Laura Oatman, AIA who is running for Congress in California’s 48th Congressional District.
A small business owner, mother, and community activist, Laura has deep roots in Orange County. Laura completed her bachelor’s degree at UC Irvine, and her Master’s in Architecture from UCLA where she met her husband. Laura is a LEED-accredited licensed architect with over 30 years’ experience designing environmentally-friendly buildings. She and her husband own Oatman Architects, located in Newport Beach – a city she has called home for over 40 years. While raising her five children, Laura became active in local community organizations and nonprofits, as well as starting several small businesses including a health and wellness company that has earned multiple accolades.
After the 2016 elections, Laura created OC Progressives, a group of positive, forward-thinking individuals in Orange County. The group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month and believes in common sense and compassion. The group was created with three goals in mind: 1) to educate our members on a variety of topics with experts from their respective fields; 2) to provide resources and information on activities that members can further express themselves politically; and 3) to bring like-minded individuals together in a fun and professional way!
