Welcome Laura Curk to Durrell Communications! Laura joined our family back in April and is now one of our Account Managers.
She is a graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University and has an extensive background in event planning, public speaking, writing and eating Twizzlers. She has received numerous awards for her leadership skills and academic achievement. Her honours degree in Communication Studies and her previous role as Vice President: Programming and Services for Laurier’s Students’ Union prepared her for this position.
Laura is always looking out for her team and there’s never a shortage of kind words, hugs and Starbucks! She prides herself in being an enthusiastic and motivational team player. Her friendly personality and minor obsession with Beyoncé has made her a perfect fit for our team. Plus, since she started, we’ve had more Starbucks than ever before.
“Working for Durrell Communications has been a life changing experience! I have gone outside my comfort zone and have learned so much because of it. Working with Melissa and Jordan has been wonderful! They have done a lot to make me feel welcomed and comfortable. I’m incredibly grateful for this opportunity and will work to be the best I can be for Durrell Communications and Uptown Waterloo!”
A Little Fun:
Laura grew up wanting to be a ballerina! But we’re glad she opted for Public Relations instead. She has been a vegetarian for the past four and a half years, has a turtle named Squirtle, and is an advocate for post-secondary students with disabilities.
