Laura Dogu at Bogleheads 8
|Alma mater||Southern Methodist University, Dwight D. Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy|
|Notable work||Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning, editor|
Laura Dogu is one of the premier posters on the Bogleheads.org forum. She's especially good at drawing out the required information needed to help new investors, no matter how many exchanges are required to finalize things.
Jack Bogle had previously named Taylor Larimore "King of the Bogleheads" and he called Mel Lindauer "The Prince of the Bogleheads". Realizing that the Bogleheads had no "queen", Taylor and Mel decided to crown Laura "Queen of the Bogleheads" at their 2007 reunion in recognition of her many excellent contributions to the success of the forum. Laura was then invited to become a panel member for the Q&A with the Experts session and has continued to participate since then (schedule permitting).
On August 5, 2015, Laura was confirmed as the US ambassador to the Republic of Nicaragua. She served this office from August 5, 2015 through November 14, 2018.
Along with Jack Bogle, Mel Lindauer and Taylor Larimore, Laura was honored by being selected as one of Money Magazine's everyday heroes in the magazine's March 2012 issue: Champions of the small investor
