Laura Gano

Operations and HR Manager


I joined Peter Kiewit Foundation in 2019. As the Operations and HR Manager, I assist in overseeing and maintaining office processes and procedures,  as well as overseeing all Human Resources functions.

Prior to joining the foundation, I spent 7 years working in the staffing and recruitment industry, providing operations and human resources assistance to both internal and external employees. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Morningside College. 

I grew up in the marvelous state of Iowa and currently live in West Omaha with my husband, Ben, our two children, Will and Emersyn, and our dog, Abby. In my free time I enjoy traveling “back home” to Okoboji, spending time with friends and family, and volunteering as the Nebraska State Director for Great Plains Pointer Rescue.
