Laurie Talcott, B.A.
Chief Financial Officer
Finance and Administration
As Chief Financial Officer, I am responsible for the overall financial health of Point Blue Conservation Science.
A passion for social and economic justice and environmental well being has always driven my work. I bring over 30 years of financial and administrative experience as a business and financial manager. In that time, I have been the Finance Director of or provided financial consulting to over 20 businesses, non-profits and other organizations including the California Democratic Party, Service Employees International Union, Frontline Campaigns, Santa Cruz Community Housing Corporation, El Pajaro Community Development Corporation, Community Printers, and Democratic Management Services. I have served on the City of Santa Cruz’s Economic Development Task Force and on numerous Boards including the Santa Cruz Community Credit Union.
I hold a B.A. in Community Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Born in San Francisco, I live in Santa Cruz, and enjoy Aikido, biking, hiking, art, and travel.
