Laura began her career as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in 1999 and has worked to make the world a friendlier place ever since. During her AmeriCorps years, she learned the basics of grant writing, project management, and volunteer recruitment, skills that she has sharpened in the years since.
Much of Laura’s career has been spent working for Extension in all programs in various states helping farmers increase the productivity of their farms and improve their living standards.

As a Community and Economic Development Educator, Laura’s projects included teaching seminars on grant writing, working with communities to determine the impacts of oil and gas drilling on their economics and schools, and with prisons to implement entrepreneur education so that prisoners would be able to create their own opportunities upon release.
