Laura received her graduate degree from Columbia University’s School of Journalism and her undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis.  Before moving to New York, she lived in Los Angeles for six years working in television and film production. 

After watching scores of young adults struggle with the loaded question, “what do you want to do?,” she set out to provide a text, offering honest insight – good and bad – about what jobs are really like.  Come and hear Laura’s advice to college students and young graduates about finding your voice and making informed career decisions.

All members of the Loyola community are invited to attend.  For more information about Laura visit
