Laura joined Mothers Out Front in January 2019. She became involved in environmental activism when she saw a public notice sign for a hearing regarding oil and gas drilling near her home in Broomfield, Colorado. She then organized a successful ballot initiative campaign for a 5 year moratorium on fracking in Broomfield County in 2013. Laura was named a “MoveOn Fracking Fighter” by MoveOn.org for her work on this campaign in late 2013. Prior to her role with Mothers Out Front, she was an organizing manager for 5 years with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America where she cultivated warrior-mom advocates in Colorado, Kansas and Indiana. Laura is a Connecticut College graduate with an Ed.M in Human Development and Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and an M.B.A. from Columbia University.
Her precious and inquisitive boys, Beau and Casey, are her inspiration for all of her organizing work to make a better world for them to inherit.
