Then in 1997, she set her career at Weber Basin Job Corps, which was previously through the Bureau of Reclamation and now by the US Forestry. She’s served most recently as the Administrative Officer and performed special projects for the Job Corps National Office.  Laurie was the heart and soul of Weber Basin, staff & students loved her, and turned to her in times of need.  Laurie was kind to a fault and always willing to step in and help those around her.   

Laurie also had a great love for miniature horses and was very accomplished in that field, working as a judge for many horse shows in multiple states for many years. Laurie passion for horses started with the love of her first horse, ‘Chief Feather’, an Appaloosa horse. Laurie and her husband Andy also breed and raised a Grand National Champion Miniature horse. Together, they have 28 horses in total, 2 Chihuahua dogs, Gary & Chewy, and her two kitties, Sammie & Abby Girl. Overall, they were her children and her world.
