Laura Hanlon

Laura Hanlon, CPA - Founder

A Texas native, Laura moved to Arkansas in 1996 to attend Hendrix College in Conway. She was a multi-sport student-athlete playing basketball & golf. In 2001 Laura earned her Masters of Accountancy degree and was awarded the Eloise Raymond Accounting Award for top students in her class.

In response to an overwhelming need for full-service payroll needs of small to medium-sized businesses, Laura opened an independently owned and operated payroll service - 360 Payroll Solutions - in December 2012. This business has only enhanced Laura & her team’s ability to help small business owners and support local businesses. 

An avid outdoorswoman and lifetime athlete, Laura loves the Natural State and you may see her driving her Jeep Wrangler on warm days in the fall & spring, fishing for trout on the Little Red River, hiking the beautiful state, or running the streets of Conway! She has participated in triathlons, half-marathons & other running races, post-collegiate team sports, and golf.
