She began volunteering in her children’s dance and theater productions; school plays, and found her way to youth and community theater companies. In 2010, she was instrumental in coordinating onsite front of house duties for American Rose Theatre’s “13,” an Assistant Stage Manager for Spring Awakening, and most recent, she was our Production Manager for “Living History”: actors portraying passengers and crew members in the Titanic Exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum. She exemplifies the best in theater and life attitudes: She strives to ensure that everyone involved has a quality experience. Because of the professional attitude she brings to everything she does, Laura has become a much in-demand advisor and participant with several arts groups. We would not be the organization we are without the love and commitment Laura brings to ART.
