Laura grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and received her Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy. She then completed her PGY-1 Pharmacy Residency at the University of Colorado Hospital. Laura fell in love with the beautiful state of Colorado and her experience at the University of Colorado Hospital, so she is thrilled to be staying here for another year. In addition to critical care, Laura has interests in infectious disease and transplant. Eventually, she hopes to attain a clinical pharmacy position at an academic medical center where she is able to work as part of an integrated health care team, conduct research, and precept students and residents. Outside of pharmacy, Laura enjoys spending time at her family cabin in northern Wisconsin, skiing, and playing soccer and tennis. She also loves traveling, sampling different foods and wines, and seeing live music.
