Planner | GIS Analyst II
Laura is a planner and GIS analyst in Toole Design’s Oakland office. She first found her passion for urban planning while working in Copenhagen, and has focused her career on how transportation networks can help create more livable cities. Prior to joining Toole Design, Laura worked in both land use and transportation planning in both the public and private sectors. Her experience gave her a deeper understanding of how to communicate complex information, the power of data to support policies, and the integrated relationship between land use and transportation. She is passionate about data-driven decision making and finding new ways to solve transportation problems through analytics and data visualization. Laura holds a Master of City Planning degree from MIT.
Outside of work, Laura can be found rock climbing, cycling, playing pickup basketball, or tracking down the best pizza in town.
