Laura Connors has been involved in the entertainment field for most of her life. Born in New York, she enjoyed performing in school & community productions, as well as taking advantage of all the amazing theatre NY has to offer. She played the baritone and tuba in marching, jazz, concert and symphonic bands.
Laura earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre from Florida State University. After graduation, she landed an internship on a small film shot at Burt Reynold's ranch in Jupiter, FL. This opportunity led to her getting a job on a film in South Carolina, called Something To Talk About, which had an entire crew from Los Angeles. After the production wrapped, she was encouraged to move to California, where she got a job in the accounting office of the film Independence Day.
There was no looking back after that, and her accidental job as an accountant in the film industry became a life-long career that spanned more than twenty years and includes such impressive films as Armageddon, Amistad, and National Treasure, and some duds like Turbulence and Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties. She has also worked in television on such shows as Mists of Avalon, Dracula, Planet Sheen, and Back At The Barnyard.
Upon retirement, Laura moved to Missouri to be closer to her father. She serves as the Publicity Chair on the Board of Directors for the Pulaski Fine Arts Association and has acted and/or stage managed a few productions. She is also heavily involved in animal rescue and serves as the founding Treasurer on the board of directors for TNR Patrol, a non-profit organization dedicated to the trap, neuter, return method of managing feral cat colonies.
