Before joining WILX, Laura interned at WOOD TV8 in Grand Rapids and 9&10 News in Northern Michigan. She also graduated with honors from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology.
Laura's interest in weather began while growing up on a farm, where the day-to-day weather forecast
is vital information for farmers. Broadcasting meteorologists made a huge impact on Laura's family, so she decided to
pursue a career where she could make as big of an impact on other people's lives.
When Laura's not working, she loves to spend time with her family and friends, read, cook, and enjoy the outdoors. Feel free to email her at email@example.com or follow her on twitter @LauraHartman4
