Skills
I use more than twenty years of television and broadcasting experience to develop a message that people can understand and use. Anytime I am in front of the camera, teaching a group of students or representing a local business organization - being clear, concise, and understandable is essential. My skills lend themselves toward delivering an impactful message that captures and maintains the attention of an audience in a way that brings about understanding, additional curiosity and eventually the possibility of change. Specialties:I have extensive live studio and field work, including field reporting and special events. I have been a speaker and panelist at several state and national environmental and climatological summits and conventions.

Introduction

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!
