Trying to slowly fill her techie shoes.

LAURA D. TIETJEN
Laura is a local residential designer, a "mountain" mom with two kiddos, a crazy chicken lady and owner of a fierce coyote combat fighting Rhodesian ridgeback. She grew up in Los Alamos, moved to east coast and west coast but came back to the "Land of Entrapment." She loves being close to her enormous extended family and connected to her Los Alamos community. Her duties on the board involve all "techie" stuff including managing online share files, marketing, graphics, meeting minutes, and is the website designer and administrator.
