Laura is a native Nevadan who loves the diversity of our unique area. Both the desert and the mountains hold a special place in her heart. Her love for the wild areas of Nevada have made working for Envirolution an important opportunity to maintain northern Nevada’s charms while educating the next generation. Her new position as Project Manager allows her to bring two of her passions together in one place. As a former teacher, she understands that the Project ReCharge curriculum provides for students is essential in two ways. The first is that it delves into the importance of energy efficiency, which is becoming more pertinent as our Earth changes. The second is that it allows students to work with hands-on materials that can encourage them to change the world. Laura graduated from the UNR education program with a Bachelors degree in K-8 General Education and K-12 Special Education. She loves to play softball, hike, scuba dive and go adventuring whenever possible.
