Originally from Tucson, Mrs. Laura Murray also lived in Portland for several years before returning to Arizona. She attended the University of Arizona, graduating with two degrees: a BA in Studio Art and a BS in Psychology. Mrs. Murray’s experience in schools accumulated through substitute teaching and working as a middle school math instructor at a Tucson charter school. In Portland, she also worked at a private language immersion elementary school managing special events and fundraising campaigns. Prior to coming to New Way, Mrs. Murray gained a variety of marketing experience by managing promotions for a City-funded Public Art Program, a Portland Theater, and even briefly promoted her own children’s clothing business.
When not at New Way helping campus communications run smoothly, Mrs. Murray can be found painting, crafting, or obsessing about Harry Potter (Ravenclaw house). She and her husband are enjoying parenthood with their son, Elliott, and dog, Stoli.
