Laura raced in the United States as a category 1 racer through 2010, competing on the UCI level in the early 2000s at races like the Redlands Cycling Classic, Philadelphia International Classic, Athens Twilight criterium while working full time as a molecular biologist. Having caught the cycling bug, she tossed away her BS in Biology and Masters of Science in Genetics and left the world of corporate America to join Cyclingnews in 2006. She immediately faced the seriousness of professional cycling while covering the Gent Six Day where Spaniard Isaac Galvez lost his life. This incident and the many others have pushed her to highlight stories around rider safety.

The year she joined Cyclingnews was also the year of Operacion Puerto, the beginning of the massive doping scandal and reckoning that eventually saw Lance Armstrong banned for life.

Through massive changes in the sport, the internet, and the emergence of social media and a radically altered media landscape, Laura has helped lead Cyclingnews into the modern era of professional cycling and ensure that Cyclingnews has the most trusted, independent, and authentic reporting on the sport.
