Laurie supports Bellevue College’s sustainability initiatives by collecting and entering campus finance and operations data, and preparing reports, including the annual Greenhouse Gas inventory for the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). She was also the 2013-2014 Resource Accounting Coordinator. Prior to coming to the Office of Sustainability, she completed a data analysis internship at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. Laurie is currently studying environmental science and IT at Bellevue College. A self-professed “data geek,” Laurie enjoys using data analysis tools to manage Bellevue College’s Sustainability data and help the college to reduce its environmental footprint. A native of Southern California, Laurie enjoys exploring the Puget Sound area in her free time. She is also interested in disaster preparedness, after learning that western Washington is at significant risk of a 9.0 subduction zone earthquake. Laurie thinks it would be fun to spend some time at a scientific research base in Antarctica in the future.
