Born and raised in Burlington, Vermont, Laura went on to graduate from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. In the Fall of 2005, she lived in Florence, Italy, and fell in love with the Italian culture and language.

During her time in Italy, she traveled extensively throughout the rest of Europe, and then returned again as a backpacker in 2007 following a month-long trek through Southeast Asia. 

At Music Contact International, Laura is a Project Manager.  She also handles all logistics of the Charleston International Festival of Choirs, which continues to be a huge success year after year!
