Audrey Laffely

Director
Audrey’s love of the Appalachian Trail started as a child hiking Katahdin with her family. It continued into college, with her love of the outdoors influencing her undergraduate degrees in Maine at Unity College in Parks, Recreation, and Ecotourism and Landscape Horticulture. After completing a thru-hike of the AT, she served as the Gulf Hagas Ridge Runner for a season. Since then, she has been active in the MATC serving as an Executive Committee member, site supervisor for the Horn’s Pond Caretaker, maintainer of a section around White Cap, and has served on the CARE, Finance, and Nominating Committees as well as doing member mailings. She has also earned a graduate certificate in Geographic Information Systems, completing a project on AT view-sheds, and a Master of Science in Plant Soil and Environmental Science focusing on Carbon release of rewetted soils, both at the University of Maine. She currently works as a Research Scientist at the University of Maine.
