Laura is originally from Madison, WI. She received a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN and then received her Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy. Having lived in the Midwest her entire life, she is excited to venture out west and become a resident at the University of Colorado Hospital. Laura’s primary interest is critical care and hopes to pursue a PGY2 in this area. 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.
