Lieutenant Laura Rayburn, USCG

LT Rayburn Secretary

Lieutenant Laura Rayburn, U.S. Coast Guard, serves as SSLA’s Treasurer. 

Laura enlisted in the Coast Guard in 2009, spending six years as a Marine Science Technician before earning a commission via Officer Candidate School in 2015. She is now on a dual-track career path with a primary operational specialty in Prevention and a secondary track in Finance.

As a prior enlisted officer, Laura understands the value of deckplate leadership and aims to make this a central part of her service. After attending her first SSLA Joint Women’s Leadership Symposium in 2019, she came away with a renewed interest in making the military a more welcoming place for women to serve their country and maintains that as a primary motivation today.

Laura holds a Bachelor of Science in Biological Science from Mississippi State University and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Texas. Her hobbies include reading and writing, trying new foods and recipes, engaging in all manner of outdoor activities, and cheering for her beloved Mississippi State Bulldogs.
