Laurel Thompson - Outreach Coordinator
Born and raised in the heart of Georgia, Laurel relocated to Wyoming in 2019 after spending several years in Steamboat Springs, CO. Laurel fell in love with the West many years ago, and it is no surprise that she now calls the Bighorn Basin in Northwest Wyoming home.
After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in English from Middle Georgia State University, Laurel has assumed a variety of roles throughout her professional career that have focused on marketing, communications, public relations, administration, and hospitality and tourism.
Outdoor recreation has been a huge driving force and passion in her personal life. Laurel and her husband spend their free time exploring the Bighorn Basin and surrounding areas – devoting most of their time to fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and winter sports in the Bighorn and Absaroka ranges, and she is thrilled to represent and promote Wyoming’s outdoor recreation sector on a local, state, and national level.
