Laura started her television career as a news anchor on the other side of the state in Jonesboro.
After a brief time on the anchor desk, Laura decided to try her hand at weather because ad-libbing was such a natural for her, she said.
Laura’s weather, anchoring, and hosting talents have taken her all across the country. She worked at KAIT-TV in Jonesboro; KARK-TV in Little Rock, KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, N.M., KUTV in Salt Lake City, Utah, WGCL-TV in Atlanta and was a weather fill-in for two years on the CBS Saturday Early Show in New York.
Laura's special interests lie in women's health issues, education, and environmental issues -- specifically air pollution.
Laura has a degree in elementary education as well as broadcast meteorology. She also has a master's degree in secondary education with an emphasis in science. Laura has an affinity for movies, especially foreign films. She is an avid runner, completing numerous marathons. Her hobby has now become running at least one international marathon a year with her favorite so far being in Tromso, Norway.
Laura's daughter Claudia, a wonderful athlete herself, keeps her mother in the best shape of all!
