Meet, Laura Grace Dodd- the newest member of the Davidson team! Laura Grace has joined us as our Digital Marketing Intern and will be here for the next nine months. She has been a Tennessean her whole life and graduated in May from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a minor in International Agriculture and Natural Resources.
During her time in college, she developed an interest in learning about social issues and human rights abuses that many face in the world today. In her studies, Laura Grace focused specifically on societal inequities both domestically and abroad. Her interest in different cultures and international issues led her to studying the French language in Paris for a summer where she was able to gain valuable travel and life experience. She thoroughly enjoyed her time in Tennessee. However, after spending several summers backpacking and camping in the Pacific Northwest as a teenager, living in this area became a dream of hers. And now that dream has become a reality as she embarks on a nine month journey as a participant in the Fellows Program through the Oregon Leadership Development Institute.
This program is designed to engage young people in a focused exploration of each individual’s unique purpose and vocational pathway, as informed by the teachings of the Christian faith. Laura Grace feels this program to be an amazing opportunity to be challenged personally, spiritually, and in her career. As an avid coffee and outdoor enthusiast, she is excited to begin exploring all that the PNW has to offer and to be a part of the team at Davidson & Associates Insurance.
