Helen Lynch Laurie
A small-town Georgia native, Helen began her studies at Florida State University studying music, though soon decided her heart was in Athens, GA and graduated from the University of Georgia. Upon receiving her degree in voice performance, she hightailed it outta Georgia headed for the Big Apple, where she studied singing, performed in a few operas, and then landed a job fundraising with the ACLU. As Director of Development at VFA, Helen partners with donors across the nation, with a special focus on San Antonio, to further VFA’s mission. Helen is a board member for Classical Singing and New York in June and lives in Chelsea with her husband and infant son.
