Laurent finds herself at home in Los Alamos

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

  Moving to a new town and settling in can be rough sometimes, but for Anne Laurent moving to Los Alamos from Michigan and settling in was a piece of cake.


Laurent came to the Atomic City nearly two months ago when she was hired as the new capital projects and facilities director for the county. Since then, she’s been working on new ways to streamline the capital projects process and find ways to cut down on costs without compromising quality, she said.


A native of Arizona, Laurent got her degree in architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design. During her last year of college, she went to Italy to finish her program.


“My parents said travel while you can,” she said. After her trip to Italy, Laurent returned to Arizona, where she met her husband, Steve.


Laurent got her career start with the Arizona State Parks, where she worked as a facilities manager.


“I focused on project management. I flocked to task where voids needed to be filled,” she said. “That’s how my career evolved.”


She enjoys working with teams of people, rather than alone. “I was never one of those architects who wanted to work in their basement,” she said with a chuckle.
