Laurie attended the University of Northern Iowa and received her BFA in Theatre Arts with a Performance Emphasis. After spending more than a decade working and performing in San Francisco and Chicago, she returned to her home state of Iowa with her husband to raise their son. She has worked in the public school system as a para-educator and spent the last several years as a teacher in a preschool here in Iowa City.

 She enjoys singing, writing, and being creative in many ways. She also enjoys working her promotions and marketing business when she is not teaching.

 Laurie is very excited to join the Preucil family and her love of teaching and learning with our students.
