A former reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Laurie is a graduate of Moravian College (Bethlehem, PA) where she studied journalism and photography. She has also been an associate editor for Augusta Magazine, where among other things, she collaborated on the annual Masters Tournament Guide.
Born and raised outside of Philadelphia, Laurie grew up with the Eagles, Phillies and 76ers. Though she now resides in the heart of SEC country and roots for the Georgia Bulldogs, she travels frequently to her original Pennsylvania home, often just in time for an Eagles home game.
