Laurie oversees efforts to enhance the company’s foodservice, hospitality and meat and poultry processing brands through integrated marketing programs, live events and custom publishing. Most of her career has been spent in the foodservice and hospitality sector. When not picking blueberries in Southern Michigan or wandering art fairs, you’ll find her tasting wines in Sonoma Valley or ballooning over the mountains of Arizona. Creating an intimate dining experience for friends is one of her favorite things, and her Brussels sprouts recipe has gained its own following. Prior to Plate, Laurie was VP Marketing for a Chicago design firm and a marketing executive for Reed Business Foodservice and Hospitality publications.
What’s her favorite food? Why tacos of course. “I could have them for every meal.”
