Laura is the 2018-2019 Blackwell Post-Baccalaureate Fellow in the Smith College Special Collections. Throughout her fellowship, she will be experiencing some of the different components of archival work such as serving on the reference desk and meeting with potential donors. She will also be working closely with the Sophia Smith Collection of Women's History as she completes a research project on the evolution of its collection development policy. 

Laura hails from Birmingham, Alabama and brings with her a love of 2000s southern rap, opossums, and fried chicken. She also enjoys spending time with her mom, listening to K-pop, and reading dystopian fiction.
