Meet Laura Oppenheimer, our new Director of Marketing! Laura hails from Palo Alto, California, and attended Palo Alto High School. She then went on to study Political Science at the University of Chicago. In her spare time, she loves solving New York Times crossword puzzles, cooking, baking, exploring restaurants in San Francisco, and working out so she can do more cooking, baking, and dining out. At Quizlet, she will be building out our marketing function to help us reach even more people around the world.

Read on to learn more about Laura:

Quizlet: If you could learn to do anything, what would you learn?

Laura: I would love to understand more basics of coding. I'm about 30% through the Codecademy Javascript course, but I've had a tough time sticking with it. I need to get back to it!

Q: What was one thing you wish you could have changed about high school?

L: I wish I had known in high school that it was all going to work out. I was a very studious high school student and very competitive — I was convinced if I didn't get all A's or take all honors classes, I wouldn't go to a good school, wouldn't get a good job, wouldn't be successful, etc. In retrospect, I wish I would have been a little more generous with myself (and a little less stressed in the process).

Q: What's the most useful thing you've ever learned?

L: Knowing how to cook is incredibly valuable. I love being able to come home, look in the refrigerator, and be able to come up with something delicious to eat for dinner, even if I haven't planned ahead.

Q: What was your favorite subject in high school?

L: Journalism! I was a total newspaper nerd in high school and loved writing and editing for the newspaper.

Q: What's the most interesting article, blog or book you've read recently?

L: I really enjoyed reading Choosing a School for My Daughter in a Segregated City, on segregation, class and public schools from the NYT Sunday magazine. As an urban parent of a young child, it touched on a lot of the questions I think about in terms of what we want for our son, for our city, and for our community.

    This website is immensely helpful to those that self-study subjects, in my case languages, so please keep this in mind when dreaming of new tools for memorization. Learn more coding, and like you, I loved Journalism (when it actually involved finding out the who, what, where, when and why of events...vice reformatting public relations pieces released by whomever wanted to control the discourse).

    Little or no light penetrates this part of the ocean, and most of the organisms that live there rely for subsistence on falling organic matter produced in the photic zone.

    While at the bottom, Piccard and Walsh observed a number of small sole and flounder.[10] Their claim the fish were swimming would prove at least some vertebrate life can withstand the extreme pressure at the oceans' deepest point.[11] They noted that the floor of the Challenger Deep consisted of "diatomaceous ooze". The ascent took 3 hours and 15 minutes.
