One of Laurie’s key focuses at the office is Residential Real Estate. She is most likely your first contact at the firm when you are buying/selling or refinancing your home. Her pride in a job well done will ensure that your transaction is completed smoothly and efficiently, and that all your questions and concerns are addressed. Laurie is a born and raised Calgarian, growing up in Radisson Heights, proud graduate of Forest Lawn High School, as well as a graduate of the SAIT Legal Assistant Diploma Program.
Her career as a Legal Assistant began when she applied for a “Part Time Legal Assistant” job in September 2001 at a small law firm, she was only 3 weeks into starting the LA program at SAIT and hoping that a part time job would enhance her studies. It sure did! She was told by several teachers at SAIT that “when you find the right lawyer to work for, stick with them”. She took that advice to heart and has now worked with Guy Lacourciere since 2001.
When Laurie’s not working, she loves being with her family (husband, Gord and son, Jake – and the family dog, Scout). A big fan of walking (always trying to get in extra steps in a day), reading, biking, skiing, and all things Star Wars.
