Vice President / Human Resources
Laurie has found her career calling as a human resources specialist and teacher. Her proudest moments are the times she’s able to help, teach or support someone. And she does all of those often at Harris—teaching classes, developing employee learning programs and enhancing recruitment efforts to build the best teams.
She has also taught at the AIA, AEBL, Senior Executives Institute of ACEC. Laurie brings to Harris over 32 years of experience in HR leadership positions for such companies as The Ratcliff Architects, Gensler, Psomas and Anshen+Allen/Stantec.
You could say her success in this industry was practically predestined: Laurie’s grandfather was an architect and structural engineer, and her father was a licensed contractor who bought her a Sawzall at age 15. He thought every child should be able to build her own house.
I need to work in a place I can believe in, where everyone is learning and growing. I believe in Harris and having a culture where the long-term focus is on people and projects, not the whims of the market.
