A born and bred Wisconsinite, Laura moved to Madison eight years ago after spending time living in Japan and Illinois. She received masters’ degrees in East Asian history from both Northern Illinois University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Deciding that a career in academia was not suitable in the long run, Laura instead started to apply for positions at the university where she would be able to support students’ academic careers. While she misses being in front of a classroom, Laura has found her niche at the School of Nursing, where she supports student enrollment, timetable classes, and various other data and technology related tasks.
