Howdy! I’m Laura! It’s super exciting to have the opportunity to serve on this amazing team from Blackhawk Middle School Ministries and Eaglecrest Alaska Ministries! I feel humbled to walk alongside the kids in Sutton and look forward to learning and growing and being open to what God has planned for us. A little bit about myself: I was born and reared near Milwaukee, turned down an art scholarship to study biology, earned my Ph.D. and worked at an awesome engineering school out East, then moved back to Wisconsin about nine years ago. I lead a technical team at a local manufacturer of scientific equipment, and for fun edit a monthly newsletter for a local non-profit. When I’m not working, or hanging out with my family, you might find me knitting, reading, or staring off in to the distance thinking.
