Laura got her start as a chemical dependency counselor at Skagit Recovery Center in Mount Vernon, WA in 1997. She worked for SRC until her move to Clark County in 2000, where she was hired on as a counselor at Community Drug and Alcohol Center (now Lifeline Connections).
Passionate about recovery, she and her then co-worker, Andrew Lindsell, partnered up and opened Anchor Point Counseling in Battle Ground, WA in 2007. After realizing the limited resources the county had to offer, Laura decided to go it alone and opened her own agency in 2009, which is how ACT came to be.
