Laura joins Helping Hands Cochrane after many years as a corporate, non-profit, and charitable sector administrator. With education in non-profit management, business administration, and accounting, and a love of local volunteerism, Laura is so excited to tie it all together and join the Helping Hands team. Laura was a founder and former President of the Friends of Fireside School Society, and is one of many proud volunteers who built the inclusive playground in Fireside. Laura is currently the Board Secretary for Sport4Life Cochrane, supporting sport groups in Cochrane and working to increase inclusive and accessible recreation opportunities for children and youth with disabilities.
