Laura Scott

Laura Scott joined ATMS in April of 2018 as marketing director. She works on promoting the business, recruiting new clients and giving the company name recognition by handling all marketing and promotions for the company.

Formerly a client of ATMS, Scott owned a women’s magazine for 17 years and later two weekly newspapers for eight years. ATMS handled all the accounting, taxes and payroll for the business until she sold the newspapers in 2013. “I went through all the insanity of having employees do the bookwork and handle the payroll, only to have mistakes made and also had an employee who was dishonest before I came to my senses and hired ATMS.”

A lifetime friend of owner Kerri Cuff, Scott watched Cuff grow the business through the years. “I just didn’t realize how much I needed them even though I was aware of the services they offered. Once I was on board, everything ran smoothly and I was able to focus on running my day-to-day operations without worrying about all the financial aspects. I think that experience gave me a great understanding of how very much ATMS can help businesses and it gave me a great foundation for being able to market the company with enthusiasm. I truly do understand a client’s need for this service.”

Scott attended Southeast Missouri State University and Arkansas State University where she studied journalism. She grew up in Kennett, Missouri and moved to Springfield in 1985. She moved to Walnut Grove in 2006, where she lives with two dogs, two cats and two horses.
