Prior to joining Baxter Harder, Laura attended George Fox University, receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. Upon returning to Bend, Laura pursued a new career working as an Escrow Assistant for a title company. In 2008, she made another career change, and began working at Deschutes County Circuit Court. In her thirteen years at the court, she started as the receptionist and worked her way up to a Circuit Court Scheduler. Through her experience at the court, she has built many long-lasting relationships with local attorneys in Central Oregon and has valued assisting people with court matters. She is excited to join the Baxter Harder firm to continue serving the Central Oregon community.
