Hi everyone! My name is Laura, and I’m a Community Manager on the Community team at Coursera. I’m here to help learners connect with and support each other as they work to achieve their learning goals.
Prior to joining Coursera, I worked as a Content and Community Manager at Soi Dog Foundation – a large animal welfare organization in Thailand. I’ve also worked in social-behavioral health research, educational travel, educational publishing, and international education. I have Bachelor of Arts degrees in English (creative writing) and French, and I have a Master of Social Work degree with a focus on community and organizational leadership.
Recently I have been studying positive neuroplasticity and mindful meditation. I’m passionate about social-ecological justice and intersections of human and animal welfare (social dimensions of the One Health concept).
I believe everyone is here because they have something unique and valuable to gain and contribute. I look forward to getting to know you as a vital part of this community!
