Chief Operating Officer
Laura Cheplak brings a unique perspective to Glassman Wealth Services with almost two decades of operations experience in the nonprofit arena. Previously the Chief Operating Officer of an international organization supporting the leadership development of students around the world, Laura supported all aspects of the business from strategic planning, communications, IT, and HR. But the most rewarding aspect of her role was supporting the growth and objectives of those she was working with.
As COO, Laura works closely with founder and president, Barry Glassman, to fine-tune and implement his vision for Glassman Wealth Services. She leads and manages the firm’s business operations and the Glassman Wealth team, and is excited to help them fulfill their goals and be the best advocates for their clients as possible.
Laura is originally from Chicago (Go Bears!) but spent her teenage and college years in the Boston area, studying philosophy at Boston University. Her desire to make the world a better place brought her to the DC area in 2004 where she quickly put her organizational and logistical skills to work.
Outside of work, you’ll find Laura enjoying time with her husband and two young boys. She looks forward to getting back to international travel once her kids are a bit older.
Fun Fact: Laura is obsessed with collecting hotel and airline points. She’s been lucky enough to travel around the world in some very cool airline cabins with those points. Some might even call her a hoarder with over 4.5 million Bonvoy points and just under a million Chase points. She hopes to put them to good use again soon!
