As a horologist I take pleasure in restoring timepieces for future generations.
Laura Shepherd got her start repairing typewriters in the early 1980s. Her passion for troubleshooting and fixing typewriters led her to Xerox Corporation for the next 19 years.
After retiring from Xerox, Laura decided that she was not done using her mechanical abilities, and she enrolled in the clock program at the NAWCC (National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors) school of horology in Pennsylvania and graduated in 2008.
Since then, she has repaired hundreds of clocks. Her specialty is grandfather clocks, but her expertise extends to pendulum, cuckoo, antique and standard wall clocks. She has been servicing the Atlanta area since 2009.
Laura feels clocks are works of art and carry memories and history with them.
