About Laura

I'm an award-winning freelance reporter based in southwest Colorado. I've covered the Western Slope of Colorado since 2014. I've worked at public radio and television stations in Phoenix, Tucson, and Paonia. My work has aired on NPR, the BBC, Marketplace, Harvest Public Media, and the Rocky Mountain Community Radio exchange. I was a 2015 fellow for the Institute for Justice & Journalism. My fellowship project, a three-part-series on the Karen refugee community in Delta, CO, won a regional Edward R. Murrow and an Award of Excellence from the Colorado Broadcasters Association. I also has experience as a videographer and video editor. I graduated summa cum laude from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University.
