Director of Children's Programming
“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
Lauri firmly believes that community transformation begins in the heart of a child. She is passionate about creating a safe, loving environment where children can heal and thrive. As a pediatric nurse of 15 years, Lauri has fervently pursued holistic care for children in the hospital, home care, and psychiatric care settings. She has also lead children’s ministries for over 15 years, preaching the Gospel to children and serving in community outreaches and world missions. With that experience, she plans on bringing a holistic approach to youth development that spans cradle to graduation, while providing educational support, social and emotional skill development, healthy conflict resolution, and trauma-informed care. Lauri is happily married to her high school sweetheart and best friend, and they have two precious children together.
