Before undertaking graduate studies, she completed bar school at the École du Barreau du Québec and received her law degree from the Université de Sherbrooke.

She developed a specific interest for securities and financial markets after working for a regulatory body, a business in the managed accounts platform industry, and a large Canadian financial institution.  She also completed a securities course offered by the Canadian Securities Institute while at law school.

In addition to her professional and academic activities, Laurence has been playing highly competitive soccer for 16 years. She was a student athlete throughout her academic career, in particular as a member of the Université de Sherbrooke women’s team, which ranked fourth in the Canadian University Soccer Championships held in British Columbia in the fall of 2015.
