This is Laura's first year on the PCS faculty team! She grew up in Maryland and moved to Washington to attend Seattle Pacific University. In 2012, Laura and her husband Ern moved to Pullman in order to plant a church. In addition to teaching part-time at PCS, she is very involved in her local church where her husband pastors. Ern and Laura have three children who are students at PCS. As a teacher, Laura is excited to build relationships with her students and to help their hearts and minds grow in love for God and learning. In her free time, she enjoys camping and time with her family and dog Charlie.
