Laura was a 1996 graduate of Gaston High School. She was a beauty queen, cheer leader and a member of the volleyball team. After graduation she attended Gadsden State for two years.

She was a bone marrow donor in 1995 for her brother, Christopher, who had a rare form of Leukemia. The bone marrow transplant took place at Duke University.
