Laura began her time with EMI as an intern in the Guatemala office. After working in industry as a structural engineer, God led Laura back to EMI in 2013 where she joined the US office as the CAD Manager. Her care and attention to detail were a great gift in helping the US office and participating in trips around the world as part of EMI projects. After serving for 5 years in a design role, Laura’s care for people while seeing the need for better systems and organizational structures led her to shift to a role in Human Resources, something that she discovered quickly to be a natural fit for her. Over time, she has added knowledge and experience to HR, becoming a licensed HR professional and taking on leadership as the Manager of HR in 2022. Laura has become an invaluable asset to the office – developing an office culture of belonging, providing care and support to our staff, and providing order to our office’s operations.
During her time at EMI, Laura married her husband (and EMI Intern Alum, Wes) and added daughter Camille to their family. When not at the office, Laura and family can be found in their community in Palmer Lake if not out on one of their frequent excursions in the Rocky Mountain trails and campgrounds.
EMI USA has been so blessed to have Laura with us and we appreciate her dedication, compassion, and service and the way in which she has ministered so effectively towards and among us.
