As an extremely shy child, Laurie used to hide behind her mother’s leg until she was put in a kindergarten theater performance. It was there in entertainment that she found “home.” Laurie calls Holyoke, MA her actual home, where she was born and raised…but don’t ask her where her Boston accent is because she’s from Western MA where there isn’t one. However, you’ll probably hear her use her favorite word, “wicked,” as in “Dunkin’ Donut’s vanilla iced coffee is wicked good.”
Before making her trek across the country, Laurie had a long run with comedy improv troupe The Comical Mystery Tour and trained in New York City at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Here in Los Angeles she studies at L.A. On-Camera Training Center, Hal Masonberg’s Commercial Workshop Intensive and Upright Citizen’s Brigade.
Laurie is a licensed cosmetologist and a pretty decent ping pong player.
When Laurie isn’t acting, you’ll find her pet sitting, organizing or reading up on the latest medical studies. Laurie enjoys playing games and reading about astrology while listening to Billy Joel and reminiscing about her dog Oliver. Oh, and she’s probably eating pizza. She’s really likes pizza.
