Laura Barry

I was an AmeriCorps Project Conserve member in 2010-2011, serving with RiverLink as Volunteer/Outreach Coordinator.   In this position I contributed to the management of RiverLink's public image through social media updates and website administration. My responsibilities also included designing original marketing materials for print and web. 

I studied painting and ceramics in college and have always been interested in design. RiverLink gave me the opportunity to mold my position to my interests. After my service year I was hired as a freelance designer for The Laurel of Asheville magazine through a connection I made at RiverLink.  I'm now a full-time designer at the Mountain Xpress. 

I wouldn't be where I am today without the connections I made and the experience I gained while in Project Conserve.
