Laurel comes to Discovery Link with five years of summer camp directing experience on the East Coast. While in college she worked as a counselor and then director at an overnight Girl Scout camp in upstate New York. Then, after receiving her Master’s in Education and Student Counseling from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, directed day camps in the Boston area. She strongly believes in the power of out of school time learning to allow children to explore their interests and dive deep into topics, building strong, cooperative relationships with staff and peers at the same time.
Originally raised in Colorado, the mountains were calling and Laurel returned home this year to be close to family. She is excited for the opportunity to work with the Teller community kids year round. Outside of work she loves being in the mountains and spending time with family and friends.
