Laura grew up in Evergreen, CO, which gave her the opportunity to enjoy camping, skiing and hiking. She especially remembers the family trips to Mexico and huge extended family gatherings during the holidays. She has been a Husker fan since before she could walk, because her Dad was born and raised in Lincoln.
“I have loved writing since I was about six years old,” Laura says and continues that it’s even been therapeutic at times. Attending Denver Broncos football games sparked her passion for live field reporting. Laura graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. While in college, she worked at KPAX-TV in Missoula.
Laura comes to Channel 8 Eyewitness News with experience in news and sports reporting at KAJ-TV in Kalispell. “I have always looked at my job a beautiful chaos, but I wouldn’t trade it for any other profession”. Laura likes to be active in the community. While in Montana, she volunteered at community not-for-profits and she was a mentor for at-risk adolescent girls.
Laura is a “Denver Broncos Superfan”, she says. The outcome of a Broncos game can dictate her mood for days. Viewers might be surprised to learn that Laura played on an adult premiere soccer league. She loves the outdoors, concerts and has an absolute weakness for puppies.
