Laura RoppÃ© is an award-winning singer-songwriter, cancer survivor, speaker, and former attorney from San Diego, California. She obtained a bachelor's degree in theater arts from UCLA, but then pursued the “family business”â€•she attended law school at the University of San Diego, where she graduated number two in her class, then went on to practice employment/business litigation for over a decade. In 2008, the year of her diagnosis with triple negative breast cancer at age thirty-seven, RoppÃ© ditched her legal career to follow her musical dreams in earnest.
