Laura Schoen Carbonneau

Executive Director



Laura joined Visit Brookings (formerly the Brookings CVB) in July 2019, bringing over 12 years of CVB and Chamber experience to the position. Through the years her adventures have taken her to the top of Mt. Rushmore, to stepping foot (literally one foot) in North Korea, and to a honeymoon surprise trip to London and Mallorca Spain, planned by a group of friends.  Whether it’s serving as a Location Producer for the Amazon Prime TV Series Fireball Run or coordinating the welcome center and information booths for the Vietnam War Memorial Dedication in Pierre, Laura strives to find the best possible way to showcase a community. A South Dakota native, Laura earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism from the University of South Dakota. She put her degree to work at KEVN-TV in Rapid City and KSFY-TV in Sioux Falls before joining the CVB world. 

Laura's Top Travel Tip: 

"Don’t wait to take that dream vacation. Kids grow, circumstances change. Make memories with the time you have right now."
