She holds a Masters in Theatre Studies from the University of Guelph, she is a certified teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®, and she holds a BFA in Contemporary Theatre from Simon Fraser University. As a Theatre Artist, Laura has written and co-written plays that have been produced across Canada, in Wellington, Nz, and in New York, NY.

'Laura helps her students understand not only the power of the voice but all the theatrical possibilities, both subtle and nuanced, operatic and even primal. Laura has a sophisticated understanding of the connection between the voice and our inner life, as well as our personal history, and how the voice and body are interconnected and in constant conversation with one another. She is a kind and encouraging teacher with a clear and constant vision.'
