Introducing Director of Admissions and Alumni Relations Laura Murphy

Many of you probably already know Mrs. Laura Murphy. As part of a small group of faculty members who have attended every Upper School Commencement since 1999, Mrs. Murphy knows most of the alums who have been on the Siesta Key and Lakewood Ranch campuses. This year, she is taking on an additional role overseeing ODA's Alumni Relations.
Mrs. Murphy began her tenure at Out-of-Door as a teacher and has been Head of Lower School and Director of Admissions. “While I have done a lot of jobs during my tenure at Out-of-Door, they all involve connecting with the people in the community, and that is truly what I enjoy,” Mrs. Murphy said.
Mrs. Murphy is excited to hear from all of you! Contact her at
