With over 15 years of experience in the nonprofit sector as a volunteer, intern, director, and advisory board member, Laurie has built a reputation as the epitome of a strategic partner who brings people together to achieve results that drive organizational growth. Her biggest passion is helping organizations be better at doing good.

As someone who holds a Master of Arts degree in Nonprofit Management from Antioch University, Los Angeles, Laurie has spent years studying the mechanics of successful organizations.

She has developed curriculum for and successfully started multiple new programs, launched new social enterprise business lines and is well versed in the area of corporate social responsibility having led activations for Fortune 500 companies.
Laurie’s core values are integrity, innovation, inclusion, and initiative. She believes that true and lasting social change lives at the intersection of collaboration, innovation, and cross-sector action.
