She participated in Associated Students' Government, residence life as a resident assistant, the multicultural center, Upward Bound residence life as a resident assistant, the college radio station, Rev89 as an on-air personality and as a co-host for the morning show, and the cheerleading squad where she served as captain.

During her senior year, Laurie won the “Service to the Department'' award within the Mass Communications department for her enthusiasm, service, and positive attitude within the department.

Since 2006, Laurie has been a competitor, judge, emcee, and director in the pageantry world. Throughout the years, she held multiple city, regional, state, and national titles within different systems. In 2017, Laurie was honored to become the National Director of the American Ambassador Pageant and hopes to help grow the pageant for many years to come.
