Manager of Campsites
Laura grew up in Winthrop, Maine and was privileged to be introduced to the outdoors at a young age. Her first big adventure on the A.T. was in 1986, at the age of 11, when she hiked White Cap Mountain via the old Fire Warden’s trail while staying at West Branch Pond Camps. She graduated from the University of Vermont in 1997 with a BA in Environmental Science and has enjoyed a career with the U.S. Geological Survey since 1995. In 2005, she became a trail maintainer on the Grafton Loop Trail, and in 2015 shifted to maintain a section of the A.T. on Wyman Mountain which she still stewards today. Currently, Laura serves at the Campsite Manager on the Executive Committee as well as a member of the Communications Committee.
