Laura is an arts worker and singer who lives for making creative projects happen, serving as a connector, and nerding out on organizational culture. Her path started in music education and as it morphed into administration, she remains a constant advocate for all things access and education. At ACF, Laura works to build organizational infrastructure so her fellow workers can do what they do best. She also oversees all ACF’s youth programs and supports partnership projects as they arise.

Outside of ACF, Laura enjoys being an active freelancer in the choral and chamber music-making communities, listening to too many comedy and culture podcasts, cohabitating with her adopted pup Mo (yes, her home is now named MoTown), and making meaningful connections with her friends and family.

You should contact Laura if you have questions about school composer residencies, teen creator opportunities, or if you’re seeking support for a project idea and need help with your next steps.
