"Laurie is a sophisticated presenter and deliverer of hands-on science activities, and is equally comfortable explaining the intricacies of studying Astrophysics at university to a group of 17 year olds as she is making balloon buggies with 7 year olds and discussing forces. I have also been impressed by Laurie’s efforts towards promoting science-related careers to girls and young women. As a successful and highly-motivated person, Laurie is excellent role-model and she always makes time to attend events aimed at showing female students that science is not a gendered subject and an option for everyone. Laurie is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her for any position where commitment, enthusiasm and strong relationship-building skills are key."
