Laurel feels blessed to have been a staff member at Grace for the past decade, working as Director of Intergenerational Ministries in the many and varied tasks of the position. The heart of her ministry is working with people, and as a highly relational person, this is a great fit! One of her favorite tasks is welcoming new members, but really she loves it all.
Laurel earned her BA in English at the University of Minnesota in 2000, with dual minors in Spanish and French, so you might say she loves words! She and husband Jeff have been married for nearly 30 years, and have two adult children, Anna and Jeron, and a cute American Eskimo dog named Juneau.
