Laura began her career reporting briefly for CBC New Brunswick, before moving to Moncton to work as a video journalist with Global News. She has covered some of the toughest stories to hit the Maritimes in recent years, including the deaths of two young boys who were strangled by a python. In October of 2013, Laura covered the contentious anti-shale gas protests in Rexton, N.B. She has earned several awards for her breaking news and videography work.
