After graduating from Starfleet Academy, she was assigned to the USS Horizon. By 2375, she was serving as the Flight controller on the USS Ticonderoga under captain Roger Decatur. She piloted the ship between a Jem'Hadar attack ship and the USS Baldwin. As a result, the ship was disabled. Captain Decatur had ordered her to initiate the maneuver, and subsequently recommended her to Baldwin' captain Patrick Ingrum. Patrick acted on his recommendation, and posted her to the Baldwin's helm.
Her first duty of combat impressed Patrick a lot, as the Baldwin dodged most of the fire as they came under attack by a swarm of Jem'Hadar attack ships. She admitted (and demonstrated) a spatial sense that impressed her new captain (USS Baldwin: "Bullseye"). Patrick recommended that she take bat'leth training from a Klingon Warrior. She took Patrick's advice. The Klingons were impressed with the way she handled the Klingon sword, proclaiming that she had the heart of a warrior after only three months of training. She was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on Stardate 52535. Soon after, Laura exhibited telekinetic ability (USS Baldwin: "Only the Young").
Laura previously served on the Horizon with Stephanie Taylor, Betsy Royer, and Sarah Allison. The four formed a friendship, and got together aboard the replimat on Starbase 375 in 2375. (USS Baldwin: "Bullseye")
