Laurie has been a member of CVHC since the late 90’s. She started leading hikes last year with co-hike leader Terry Karsen. They both enjoy leading easy to moderate hikes for the club knowing that there is a need for such hikes for new members as well as people vacationing in the desert. It is their hope that people who are curious as to whether hiking could become a new activity for them will come join them on their hikes. In addition to being a hike leader she is also the Memorabilia Chairperson for the club. She has been working as a nurse over the past 25 years. When she’s not hiking she enjoys the gym and gardening.
