Nourish Hires Laura Hayden as Development Director!
Originally from Baltimore, Laura worked for, and completed her studies at, Johns Hopkins University where she got her first ‘taste’ of fundraising and special events while coordinating the Alumni Association for the Wilmer Eye Institute under the leadership of Morton Goldberg, M.D.
With a yearning to live in the desert southwest for as long as she can remember, Laura picked up and moved to Tucson, AZ where she continued her career in fundraising, working for nonprofit organizations serving people with disabilities, specifically blindness and both adult and youth homelessness. It was in Tucson where she met and married her husband Kevin, started a family and took up full-time parenthood, until 2006 when she moved to Durham and took the position with the Museum. Laura has been with the Museum of Life and Science for nearly seven years where she initially directed the annual fund efforts and grew the department revenue significantly, allowing her to focus specifically on growing the events program. Over the last four years Laura created new initiatives that generate over $250K in event revenue annually.
In her spare time, Laura enjoys designing and making jewelry, voice acting, DIY home improvements, volunteering with the Greater Durham Exchange Club, and spending time with her two teenage boys and husband of 17 years.
We are so glad to have Laura with us. Welcome!
