Following her 1973 graduation as a medical technology major, Dr. Laatsch began her professional career as a staff technologist in microbiology and serology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Milwaukee. Her fascination with infectious diseases and medical microbiology led her to specialize in this area. As she assumed increasing responsibility for teaching senior students in their clinical practicum, Dr. Laatsch became drawn to the process of student learning and pursued graduate work. Ultimately, she accepted a faculty position in the Medical Technology Program (now known as Clinical Laboratory Science) at Marquette University where she could teach medical microbiology, public health and clinical education courses.

Dr. Laatsch has been engaged in research in both microbiology and education. She has explored the prevalence of bacteria in the oral cavity and in dental infections. She has also collaborated with physical therapy faculty members to research wound and pulmonary infections. Additionally, Dr. Laatsch has investigated educational methodologies in Clinical Laboratory Science education with an emphasis on cooperative learning.
