Laura is originally from the Detroit area prides herself on her midwestern sensibility. She currently lives in Mountain View, California, but in addition to Michigan, she's lived in Toronto, Ontario; Windsor, Ontario; Las Vegas, Nevada; Chicago, Illinois; Evanston Illinois; San Jose, California; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Arlington, Virginia; and Alexandria, Virginia. She tries to keep an open mind and is always learning.

She's curious about all things technical, used to be a breaking news reporter, worked in politics for a while and now works at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. When she's not learning a new skill, she's likely road tripping on another western adventure.
