Laurie won a 2017 Writers Guild Award and 2016 nomination (Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street). She's sold pilots and written dramas, limited series, animation, single and multi-cam comedies for broadcast, cable, and OTT, which inspired her TEDActive talk, “Three Things I Learned in the Sitcom Writers' Room.” She’s been head writer (Dorothy Gale and the Wizard of Oz) and Co-EP (Fast Layne) Disney Channel; (Gortimer) Amazon. She completed the WGA Showrunner Training Program, earned a Master of Professional Writing degree from University of Southern California, and has a B.A. in Telecommunication from Michigan State University.

She’s the girl next-door...to monkey-parenting currency counterfeiters raided by the Secret Service (Soddy-Daisy, TN), an accountant who took his wife hostage at gunpoint (Des Moines, IA), and a psychologist whose mistress’ pimp threw his body parts from cars speeding across Michigan. She learned to spot stories and loves writing them for a living.
