Fittingly, Laura joined The Modern Firm as our Office Administrator after working for several years as the business administrator of a small law firm. She also has a background in academics, having earned a teaching degree from Central Michigan University, worked as a middle school teacher, and later moved to New Hampshire to become a bibliographer for academic libraries. After returning to her native Michigan, she worked at the Borders Books and Music corporate headquarters writing and assessing store manager training programs.
Laura lives in Ann Arbor with her husband and a Maine Coon mouser who is afraid of dogs, strong winds and rearranged furniture.
From handling invoicing, bookkeeping and client billing inquiries to keeping the staplers, dry erase markers and batteries all loaded, Laura keeps the administrative side of The Modern Firm running as smoothly and paperlessly as possible.
