Our all-volunteer staff manages all the operations of Bards of Birmingham.


Laura Coulter, Executive Director

Laura is the founding director of Bards of Birmingham and spearheads the artistic vision for the organization. Her background includes non-profit work in poverty alleviation and education. Since she doesn't get a paycheck from Bards, she works full time at UAB as the Events and Operations Administrator for The Edge of Chaos. Laura has two daughters, two stinky and obnoxious cats, too many books to fit on her shelves, and a neurosis for Shakespeare.
