Laura graduated from South Hills School of Business and Technology in 2015 with a specialized degree in Graphic Arts. While finishing up her last year at South Hills, she became the first graphic design intern with The Centre County Gazette. Before her internship was complete, she was offered a position to work as a full-time graphic designer for the Gazette team. After working with The Gazette for a year, Laura took a design position in the greater Philadelphia area, where she learned new skills that helped her grow in her design career. Laura has since moved back to State College and rejoined the Barash Media team, now this time working for Town&Gown and other special publications. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, playing with her four cats, watching movies, and attending comic conventions.
