Laura Edmonds

Job Developer
Director of Marketing & Job Developer

Laura is thrilled to be a part of the 4 Forty Four team! After first interacting as a Marketing Consultant in 2019, Laura joined our team full time in 2020 as a Job Developer & Marketing Specialist. She is honored and excited to participate in the atmosphere and culture of Building a Better Way.

A graduate from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Management, Laura has worked in Marketing for over 10 years. She previously worked for 8 years at an International Non-Profit, serving as an Assistant Director leading the Branding & Marketing team. Shifting gears to expand her business experience, Laura then served as the Director of Human Resources & Office Administration at a Regional Insurance Broker.

Now, as Job Developer at 4 Forty Four, Laura is defining the processes & responsibilities of new roles within our team. As Marketing Specialist, she is working closely with Lillie to lead the marketing strategy and public interaction with the 4 Forty Four brand. Laura also collaborates with Lillie in hosting quality experiences for our Clients — this is near and dear to her heart for hospitality.

Laura grew up in Galax Virginia before moving to Boone in 2011. When she isn’t working, she’s probably camping with her husband Ray, enjoying the New River or spending time with her nieces and nephews.
