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, she received her master’s degree from Central Michigan University in Special Education. As of August 2023, she has worked part-time at the Adventure Center for 20 years. Currently, she is serving as the Adventure Center Co-Director alongside Mary Ling.
Laurie and her husband, Mark, have three adult children as well as 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 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!
