Laura Kirk is joining L’Arche USA with a bachelor’s degree in Communication and Public Relations from Marylhurst University. She brings with her a decade of work experience with non-profit organizations. In the last six years she had the pleasure of working for Special Olympics Oregon. Laura is excited to bring to L’Arche USA her skills in social media, strategic planning for marketing and promotion, and digital communications. Her passion for community and inclusion spark her passion for being a part of L’Arche.
Laura’s favorite things to do in her free time are walking on the beach of the Oregon coast with family and consuming copious amounts of coffee. She has never met a pizza or donut she didn’t like. She was born and raised in Portland, Oregon where hiking and camping are a part of her blood like most people from the Pacific Northwest.
