Laura joined the Foundation in 2018 and provides administrative and logistical support for the Regional Water Management Foundation, a subsidiary of the Community Foundation, whose mission includes improving water supply reliability in Santa Cruz County. Laura’s role is primarily devoted to helping the Santa Cruz Mid-County Groundwater Agency (MGA) in its mission to sustainably manage groundwater in the basin.

Laura has long had her sights set on using her talents to make a positive impact on her community. Her professional path has run the gamut from legal secretary to lawyer. As an attorney, her practice focused first on legal research and writing, and then on environmental law. Laura enjoys the detailed demands of administrative work and is happy to apply her skills, experience, and background to important water issues facing Santa Cruz County.

Laura has long been drawn by the nonprofit world and very much appreciates the ability of philanthropy to tackle some of the most challenging issues facing communities around the world and in her own backyard.
