Born in Northwest Indiana, Laura's a graduate of River Forest High School (home of the Ingots) and got her bachelor's degree from Purdue and a master's from Indiana University [we think she roots for both even when they play each other].

Her work has won several awards from the Indiana Broadcasters Association, Society of Professional Journalists/Indiana Chapter, and Network Indiana. She has also had academic papers selected for presentation at national conferences like the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication and Broadcast Education Association.

Laura watched her share of game shows growing up and one summer while in California, she's chosen to be a contestant on "Sale of the Century". Her TV favorites include The Honeymooners, Project Runway, Seinfeld, The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who and Star Trek (TNG and the original). She also enjoys crossword puzzles and when asked what some of her favorite places to visit are she says -- office supply stores.


Haz Waste, Gas Can Event in Portage

Laura's Blog


We'll be at Portage High School this Saturday (August 11) from 9am to noon for a big collection event and gas can exchange for Porter County residents. The gas cans, courtesy of Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC), are available one-per-vehicle, in exchange for an old one, while supplies last.  Lake Michigan District Household Waste Collection crews will be there from 9am to 2pm collecting household hazardous waste from Porter County residents -- the list of things to bring includes all sorts of things, from aerosols to expired/unused medications, cleaning fluids, nail polish, fluorescent tubes and bulbs (because they contain mercury), and lots more.
