Welcome to Trans-Border, Laurie Donlon!
Please give a warm welcome to the newest member of our export pricing team — Laurie Donlon! Laurie comes to Trans-Border with enthusiasm and excitement to start her new role in a new industry.
Laurie is a native of Pittsburgh, PA, but has lived between there and the NY Capital Region for most of her life. She holds degrees in psychology and sociology with a focus on early childhood development from SUNY Albany. Right out of school, Laurie held a myriad of positions across the education, healthcare, and non-profit spaces. She has performed direct care for children with special needs, assisted disadvantaged patients with accessing healthcare, and worked to develop income-constrained housing.
This will be Laurie’s first foray into the supply chain industry and she is very excited to learn all she can. “I’m most excited to speak this new language,” she explains, “I need to be intellectually challenged at work, and I have so much to learn here.” Laurie goes on to explain that her team here has already taught her so much. “Everyone here is so excited and willing to teach someone with no previous knowledge,” Laurie says, “it’s really encouraging.”
In her free time, Laurie is a huge fitness buff. She has previously served as a spin instructor and recently got into power lifting! Laurie’s six-year-old daughter even joins in with her five pounds weights.
“I’m truly inspired by individuals who rise to the occasion despite having everything stacked against them,” Laurie says. She goes on to explain how she uses the advantages and privileges she has been granted in life to stand up for and lend a voice to those who do not have one.
We are very excited to welcome Laurie to Trans-Border! Stop by Laurie’s desk or drop them a welcome message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
