Laura graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications with a specialization in Broadcast Journalism.
During her college career, Laura was the anchor/reporter for her university's news show, Florida Focus.

Laura has had a passion for news ever since she was a child. Whether it was setting up a news desk in her room or using her parent's video camera to shoot the Florida hurricanes, she has always wanted to pursue this career.
In her spare time, Laura enjoys traveling, biking, hiking and enjoying everything the Natural State has to offer with her rescue dog, Juneau, by her side.
