As one of Los Angeles' top vocal contractors, her responsibilities include everything from being a casting agent, casting director, producer, writer, arranger, and director to navigating through all of the performance union contracts for instrumentalists and vocalists.

Laura's affiliation with The Walt Disney Company began in 1995 when she was hired to be one of the first female Jungle Cruise skippers in Disneyland history. Since then, she has gone from being an AGVA performer in Anaheim to first soprano in Epcot's Voices Of Liberty (Candlelight Processional) to assistant show director and choreographer to her current work as a vocal director and contractor for Disney TV Animation.

Her film credits include Rogue One, Sing, Cinderella III, War For The Planet Of The Apes (2017), How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2018) and the hit a cappella franchise Pitch Perfect films. Click here to view Laura's IMDb credits.
