Office Manager Laurie Fiore
Laurie joined the church staff in the fall of 2005. With many years of administrative experience, Laurie keeps the First Parish office running smoothly.
The part-time hours of the church office are perfect for Laurie as she is kept busy with an active husband and two busy sons on the home front. Laurie enjoys cooking, entertaining and, with her family of avid fans, cheering on the Boston Red Sox.
Laurie comments that the warmth of the church community attracted her to work at First Parish. We know she continues that warm welcome, extending it to the many visitors and callers in our busy office. Drop by and see!
