Communications Coordinator

Laura creates and manages our communications including newsletters, event promotion, websites, and social media. She came on staff in 2007 as Donor Database Coordinator to process and receipt donations and to maintain our donor database, and continues to oversee those tasks.

Laura is particularly drawn to Emmaus’s core values and approach to ministry: caring for those most wounded on the streets through building relationships, with a strong, foundational faith in Jesus that is shared by an ecumenical group of staff, volunteers, and supporters.

Laura is a missionary kid who grew up in Manila, Philippines and Dallas, Texas, and moved to the Chicago area to pursue a degree in Music and Third World Studies at Wheaton College. She enjoys singing and playing the flute, and is a member of St. Paul’s Church by-the-Lake. Laura is married to Joel. They live in Uptown and have an infant son.
