At an age when most people are thinking about retiring Laura is just getting started. As an actress she has landed supporting roles in two multi-award winning, independent movie shorts, and a supporting role in one multi-award winning feature length independent film. Recently she landed her first lead role in the independent short film "Telling Stories" Laura had also done theater as the lead character in the stage play "Where It All Goes Down" You can also see her on Netflix, The CW, and Signal 23 TV, a streaming platform.
