Laura Wilson has lived in Oregon most of her life. She raised her daughter here, who is now a professor at the University of Wyoming; and she also has two wonderful grandsons ages 6 and 11. Laura earned a BS in Environmental Science and JD with emphasis in Environmental and Natural Resources. She has recently retired to central Oregon where she likes to ski, run, hike, fly fish and enjoy most anything to be out in the environment, since she was raised to be an active participant in the outdoors. Laura has previously worked for The Trust for Public Land as coordinator for the Tribal and Native Lands Program, at the University of Wyoming as major gifts officer, and for the international engineering firm CH2M Hill.
