Sometime in the early 2000’s Laurie participated in a three-day training to learn the Camp Daggett Adventure Center’s Low and High Ropes Program. With her professional background in teaching, it seemed like a perfect fit. She graduated from Alma College with a degree in Elementary Education and then three years later received her Master’s Degree from Central Michigan University in Special Education. As of August 2021, she has worked part-time at the Adventure Center for 18 years. Currently, she is serving as the Adventure Center Co-Director along with Mary Ling.
Laurie is married to Mark and has three adult children and two grandchildren. She has instructed skiing for over 18 years at Boyne Highlands. She also is a member of the National Ski Patrol, specifically involved with teaching Outdoor Emergency Care. Beekeeping is a newer found hobby and she is the co-president of the Little Traverse Bay Beekeepers Guild. Chances are you will find her somewhere with her family, outdoors and in a teaching role!
