Laurie was born and raised in Bristol, Connecticut. She has always been interested in science and the special bond humans have with their pets. After high school, she pursued a career in veterinary technology and graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with an Associates degree in Animal Medical Technology.

Still residing in Bristol, Laurie and her husband Kevin, now share their home with two wonderful pugs named Kona and Wallace.
