Laurel Kaufman is a marketing expert whose career blends her deep personal passion for food, wine and lifestyle with considerable business acumen and legal expertise. Her love of food and wine began during her college years in Santa Barbara, pouring wines and producing events for Geisinger Winery. After graduating, Laurel moved east to attend Rutgers University, where she received both her J.D. and M.B.A. and began to expand her taste buds nationally.

Laurel continued to fill her appetite for the food industry while in Philadelphia, producing special events for the city’s only five-star Mobil and three-star Michelin-rated restaurant, Le Bec Fin, as well as their more casual dining bistro, Brasserie Perrier.

While on the East Coast, Laurel also did marketing for the Public House Restaurant Group, helping to open their first flagship restaurant in Philadelphia.

Upon returning to Los Angeles, Laurel took on the role of Executive Vice President and In-House Counsel for Bassett, a national retail brand, and subsequently began consulting for beauty, fashion, hospitality and entertainment companies, founding Elevate My Brand in 2010.

Laurel has followed her passion by consulting with creatives, focusing on restaurants and retailers, and continues to distill her love and hunger for elevating food, wine and retail brands globally. She sits on the board of directors for Change America, The Fender Music Foundation, Totally Fabulous Females, and Startup Demo, and she’s an advisor to the Los Angeles Chapter of Girls in Tech. Laurel is a mentor with Jewish Big Brother Big Sisters of Los Angeles and has been a member of the California Bar since 2006.
