Pastor Laurie has a B.S. in Environmental Science from Long Island University, a Master of Divinity from Lutheran Seminary in Gettysburg, PA, and a Certificate in Youth Ministry from the same spectacular institution. She has served as pastor and interim in several congregations, and as Youth Coordinator for the Upstate New York Synod.
