When Laura was five years old, she and her mother fled a domestic violence situation and found Northern Wisconsin as their new home. She graduated from Superior High School and attended University of Wisconsin-Superior, graduating with a degree in sociology and a concentration in cultural studies.
For more than 18 years, her voice has remained strong, steady, and fierce on issues that matter. In February 2021, she developed her own LLC to provide expert witness, professional forensic interviewing, and consulting services within the legal systems. She created her small business to fill the gap in the system to support child victims, families, and prosecutors that hold offenders accountable. She believes that together, our communities can ensure everyone receives equitable resources and have a seat at all decision-making tables. She has two sons and decided to raise them in Superior, Wisconsin.
