Laurie has led the Jackson Hole Land Trust as President since 2005. During her time as President, she has successfully completed numerous land protection projects, placing nearly 6,000 acres in permanent protection to date. She has spearheaded two 5-Year Strategic Plans which currently guide the direction of the Land Trust, and expanded the reach of the Land Trust further into the Greater Yellowstone Area with the launch of the Wind River Program in 2007.

Prior to joining the Land Trust, Laurie held fundraising and program director roles at The Nature Conservancy (TNC) for seven years. As Southern Yellowstone Program Director, Laurie launched complex land projects and completed numerous land deals with federal, state, non-profit, and private stakeholders, monitoring many easements on foot and horseback with local landowners.
