Meet Our New Community Organizer!

Laurie is ecstatic to be joining the JOSHUA team! She brings a background in international justice work, with professional work in the areas of human trafficking in the UK and India, interfaith peace-building in Israel and Palestine, and gender equity across the U.S. Laurie is a Presbyterian Church (USA) minister, serving as Associate Pastor at First Presbyterian Church, Neenah.
She’s a perpetual student, mom of two wild preschoolers, wife to Jesse, and an amateur farmer with more enthusiasm than skill. Her flock expands to 11 chickens, 2 goats, and a dog (Angus MacDonald, Boy Detective), with a promise to only add one new species per year.
Laurie’s writing has been published in academic journals and books, and her dissertation (“The Body and the Word: The Intersection of Religion and Rape Culture”) was completed in 2021 for her PhD in education from Colorado State University. She collects books, stamps in her passport, and friends she meets on airplanes and in other countries.
