Laura Young
Vice Chair
Laura works for Trane as a Comprehensive Solutions Account Manager, working with schools, cities, and private industry to help save energy and utilize dollars saved for other initiatives. She became involved with USGBC-MN’s green schools initiative last year because she believes that the only way to reduce our carbon footprint is by teaching kids what it means to reduce, save and ultimately be green.
