Born and raised in Colorado, Laura has relocated to beautiful New Mexico where she is continuing her acting career and embracing this next chapter with her husband and daughter.
Laura loves being outdoors, whether it's hiking, road biking, jogging, camping, or just being in nature. Despite persistent physical challenges over the years she has managed to reach some goals while she continues on her path, summiting several fourteeners in Colorado, Mt. Whitney in California, and Sandia Peak in New Mexico. She rode 150 miles over 2 days in the MS 150, and her first century ride in Avon, Colorado, where after achieving not one but two hot feet that day due to pedal placement, she was literally the last person to finish the ride (take that, SAG Wagon!)(not to be confused with SAG-AFTRA, a SAG Wagon is for Support And Gear and is often seen driving cyclists unable to finish the event back to the finish line).
Laura also enjoys writing, music, photography, traveling (especially pre-9/11 and pre-COVID), and is passionate about the importance of personal growth work and believes it is an essential tool for healing the planet and its current residents.
One of Laura's favorites is storytelling, and acting is such an incredibly cool way to do this: telling a story through each new character that she plays. There are connections that take place, between actor and character, actor and fellow cast and crew, and the ever-changing one between actor and audience that are energizing and push her to keep pursuing this work despite the often uphill challenges. Stories, whether painful, intense, joyful, hilarious, even life-changing in some way, are so important to so many. It is a privilege to tell our own story, or to help to tell someone else’s. Each opportunity to do that is a gift.
