Born in Northwest Indiana, Laura's a graduate of River Forest High School (home of the Ingots) and got her bachelor's degree from Purdue and a master's from Indiana University [we think she roots for both even when they play each other].

Her work has won several awards from the Indiana Broadcasters Association, Society of Professional Journalists/Indiana Chapter, and Network Indiana. She has also had academic papers selected for presentation at national conferences like the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication and Broadcast Education Association.

Laura watched her share of game shows growing up and one summer while in California, she's chosen to be a contestant on "Sale of the Century". Her TV favorites include The Honeymooners, Project Runway, Seinfeld, The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who and Star Trek (TNG and the original). She also enjoys crossword puzzles and when asked what some of her favorite places to visit are she says -- office supply stores.

May is National Bike Month -- and Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission is helping to spread the word about the benefits of riding a bike ...for yourself and for the environment !

Fun fact from NIRPC... Did you know the bicycle remains the most popular transportation mode in the world?

NIRPC has a bike map filled with information on Region bike trails... the Northwest Indiana Regional Greenways and Blueways Map !

On behalf of NIRPC, join Indiana 105 as the Great Futures Family Bike Ride hosted by Boys and Girls Clubs of Porter County this Saturday gets ready to roll on the Prairie-Duneland Trail this Saturday morning, May 11th.

I'll be broadcasting from the check-in location at Countryside Park in Portage, from 7:30 to 8:30 am. It's a non-competitive bike ride, for families of all ages and riding abilities, featuring free bike safety helmet inspections and free helmet fittings, and free refreshments along the trail.
