Biography:

Annalaura Solomon was born and raised in Kalamazoo, MI. She grew up community organizing with her family, focused on creating equitable safe spaces for women and minorities. She joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she graduated from high school. She attended Western Michigan University majoring in professional rhetoric. In 2009, Annalaura met her husband working together as EFY counselors and transferred to BYU after they got engaged. She graduated from BYU with a Bachelor’s in English and a minor in Women’s Studies. As a student, she was elected president of the Women’s Studies Honor Society for four years.

Annalaura worked as an Event Specialist and office manager for The Wheatley Institution at BYU for many years and was self-employed as a certified Doula (professional childbirth coach). She has been at BYU Aspen Grove since 2016, first as their sales and web manager, and now as the associate director-controller. She received the BYU Vice Presidential Performance Award in 2012 and 2020. She loves her work and will talk about BYU Aspen Grove to anyone who will listen.

In 2019, Annalaura was accepted into the Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program at BYU, graduating in April 2022. Post-graduation, she hopes to start singing again with her free Tuesday nights and looks forward to visiting Lake Michigan as often as possible.
