Environment Maine Staff
Laura is Environment Maine’s Campaign Director. She graduated in 2014 from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities with a degree in Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management. She started her organizing career during college where she organized for environmental change—first as a student at the University of California, Davis working on a successful effort to ban plastic bags in the City of Davis, and then working with Real Food Challenge to successfully convince the University of Minnesota to purchase food that supports a sustainable and just food system. Laura moved from Minnesota to Maine in 2014 to join the Environment Maine team as a campaign organizer on our Global Warming Solutions Campaign. In that role, she was instrumental in organizing sportsmen (and women) in the lakes region to take action to fight climate change, work that influenced Senator Susan Collins to become a supporter of federal climate mitigation. She started as Environment Maine's Campaign Director in January of 2016.
