After raising her children, Laura ventured into the field of GIS, a natural extension of her geology degree and working for a nonprofit in Washington DC, assisting with nonpoint source pollution data management. She started working for Sewall Company in 2014 and helps produce local and web-based GIS products for municipal and state government agencies and private companies. One of her main job responsibilities is managing field operations and quality control of data collection for natural gas companies.
On the weekends, Laura thoroughly enjoys the Maine wilderness and its solitude. She often bikes, hikes, runs, or cross country skis along its beautiful and challenging terrain and enjoys encountering bits of Maine history along the way.
