Laura grew up in Arlington, Virginia and relocated to the Philadelphia area to attend Bryn Mawr College and stayed following graduation. In 1983 she secured a position as the only paralegal in what was then a small intellectual property boutique. She continued this affiliation while attending graduate school on a teaching fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned a Master of Arts in the History of Art.
