Laura currently works full-time as a financial analyst and retail planner in Men's Accessories at Saks Fifth Avenue. She has been working in the fashion industry for seven years, previously working as a buyer at Bergdorf Goodman. While she loves her job and thrives on the fast pace of the fashion industry, she misses the writing, reading and editing she did while in college. An English Literature and French double major at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., Laura has always felt the happiest while passionately writing essays, articles and an "as-yet-unfinished" memoir, or getting hopelessly lost in a novel. She works as a freelance writer in addition to her full-time career to fuel her hobby and help feed her passion for grammar and syntax. After all, one can only look at numbers and analyze profitability reports for so long.
