Laramie Simpson

Laramie started her career as a uniformed security guard. She worked her way up the ranks to become a branch manager.  For a time, she decided to take a break from security and focus on her two children.  During this time, she opened a successful specialty cake bakery and learned the ins and outs of small business management. Running a small business gave her the experience she needed to succeed in her future recruiting and training role. She decided to return to the uniformed security world and took the opportunity to learn and grow. After some time of running branches, she turned her focus to recruiting and training. Once married, Laramie and Garrett decided to branch out independently and form G&L Security Training.
