“Laura facilitates social, academic, and personal adjustment of students to the residence hall and college. She works to develop a sense of community among residents as members of a floor, residents of a hall, and active participants in the residence life system. She is a true mediator between residents and the college administration.”
“Laura assisted athletes in developing to their full potential. She was responsible for training athletes by analyzing their performances, instructing and recognizing their skills, and providing encouragement. Her role as the assistant coach varied from instructor, assessor, mentor, demonstrator, and adviser. She greatly helped create the right conditions for learning to happen and to find ways of motivating the athletes.”
“I was fortunate to work with Laura during her time at Durham College. As both her academic advisor and professor of Business Administration, I have watched her grow into a passionate and knowledgeable professional.”
“Laura has worked for me here at Pacific Corp for two years. She started as an intern and quickly rose to an administrative position while still attending classes at Durham College. Her dedication and willingness to work long hours to get the job done have made her a favorite team member for everyone on staff.”
