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 in VFA’s southern cities to further VFA’s mission. In addition to learning everything she can about entrepreneurship, Helen enjoys trying all the yoga studios in her neighborhood and helping out Classical Singing and New York in June as a board member.
