Senior Planner, Toole Design Group

Laurie’s favorite work involves revamping streets and cities to make them better places to be. At Toole Design Group, Laurie has led teams for the Boston Bike Network plan, the Vermont Safe Routes to School Resource Center, and Connect Historic Boston. She received a Masters in City Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an undergraduate degree in Urban Studies from Vassar College. Laurie grew up in Los Angeles riding around in a car, but when she landed in Boston she got a bike and has preferred commuting under her own power ever since.
