With her accent and friendly disposition, Laurie brings a nice dose of southern charm to our staff team. Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Laurie and her family relocated to San Jose in 2015 and have been attending The River since January 2016.
Laurie’s professional background is in counseling — primarily counseling child witnesses of domestic violence. She has been a long time children’s ministry volunteer and is passionate about creating opportunities for kids to learn more about God and develop community. Her role at The River as our Children’s Ministry Special Events Assistant is a great fit as she uses her gifts of planning events and facilitating groups to serve our community beyond our Sunday morning experience.
Laurie is married to Joshua and they have 3 kids - Noah, Jack, and Katy. Their family loves an adventure and the chance to be creative.
