Laura is so excited to join FOX 47 News during the week! But FOX 47 News is not unfamiliar to Laura, she has been FOX 47’s weekend meteorologist since April of 2012.
While growing up in Ionia, Michigan, Laura’s interest in weather began at a young age. She grew up on a farm, where the day-to-day weather conditions are vital information for farmers. Broadcasting meteorologists made a huge impact on Laura's family, so she decided to pursue a career where she could make as big of an impact on other people's lives.
After obtaining a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Meteorology with honors from Central Michigan University, Laura moved to Lansing to join WILX and FOX 47 as the weekend meteorologist. From the severe drought in the summer of 2012 to the floods in April of 2013, Laura has gained experience with all types of weather and works hard each day to bring you an accurate and dependable forecast.
When Laura's not working, she loves to spend time with family and friends. Cooking, reading, and time enjoying the weather outside are a few of her favorite things. If you see Laura around, stop and say hi!
