Laurie has been a volunteer with SPAN since February of 2012 and is currently in a Court Advocate position. She volunteers to make a difference in her community and enjoys working with clients so that she can “be their friend” even if only for a few hours, on one day. Laurie states that she feels proud of the clients she has worked with that have successfully gotten legal Protection Orders.
When she is not busy assisting clients Laurie enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with her grand kids. If Laurie could have one super power it would be going back in time, preferably to a time in the early 1900’s when life seemed simpler and family was important. She’d also like to have dinner with Santa Claus so that she could hear all about giving to the less fortunate, and the joy of the holiday season. If Laurie’s life had a theme song it would be, “People who love people, are the luckiest people in the world.”
We here at SPAN think we are among the, “luckiest people in the world” to have such an amazing advocate like Laurie on our team. Her good nature and kind heart make her an compassionate advocate and we thank her for all she does for SPAN and its clients. We appreciate you so much Laurie!
