Laurie Potteiger

Information Services Manager

Laurie completed her lifelong dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in 1987 and joined the staff of the ATC the next spring. Starting out in an entry level position, she occasionally had the opportunity to do what she loved most: responding to information inquiries and talking to hikers. In 1996, Laurie was promoted to her dream job: information services manager, based in the Harpers Ferry, West Virginia Visitor Center.

Laurie volunteers as an A.T. maintainer and corridor monitor and backpacks sections of the A.T. in her time off. Maine is the only state left for her to complete before she finishes the A.T. a second time.

Laurie holds a master’s degree in Russian language and literature from the University of Virginia.
