Laura joined Kokoda Youth Foundation as Camp Kokoda Manager in 2013. Through 16 years’ experience working with young people as an instructor within Outdoor Education, Laura brings a professional approach to the industry. Laura has played an influential role in developing Camp Kokoda to the successful Outdoor education facility that exists today. The recent extension to the new facility Kokoda Park was driven by Laura’s desire to offer varied programs to her valued clients.
Laura’s varied skill set and ability to lead has had a positive impact with our Outdoor Education team and has allowed Laura to successfully oversee both administration and operations. During her time with the Kokoda Youth Foundation Laura has totally immersed herself and become a mentor on the Kokoda Youth Foundation values; Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice. In 2016 Laura volunteered as a leader in the Kokoda Challenge Youth Program (KCYP) and completed the Kokoda Track in PNG.
The team of passionate facilitators assist Laura to achieve in providing young people a unique experience that has a positive impact and life long memories. Juggling the demands of a professional career Laura enjoys nothing more than spending time with her young family and can be found in her free time horse riding in and around the Scenic Rim Area or out camping herself.
