The majority of Laurie’s professional career has been spent in the field of social science research and organizational management. As a Researcher, she conducted evaluations for programs serving women who were incarcerated and were struggling with substance abuse issues, children living in an orphanage in Tanzania, at-risk children matched with an adult mentor, and other underserved populations.
Laurie left the field of research to pursue her interests in serving individuals experiencing homelessness. This led her to the creation of Sharing Pathways, a nonprofit organization focused on assisting women who were experiencing homelessness, obtain permanent housing. Due to the extreme challenges in Denver’s housing market, Sharing Pathways was closed after successfully placing several women in stable housing.
Now, Laurie combines her research and management skills, her direct service skills and her paralegal training with her passion for equality, social justice and human rights. She provides a continuum of support to both the attorneys and our clients.
