Laura Ortega Shean

Laura Ortega Shean (CRD# 2628756) is a broker based in Medford Oregon.

Shean was employed by LPL Financial from March 1999 until November 2017. Shean’s employment was terminated after admitting to accessing a client’s funds for personal use.

According to FINRA, from March 2017 through October 2017, Ms. Shean caused six unauthorized transfers of funds totaling $124,402.83 from a customer’s account, without the customers knowledge or consent, and transferred those funds to the IRS for the benefit of herself.
