On December 19, 1998, Laime's mother died from pancreatic cancer.

Ten months later on the anniversary of her parents' wedding, her father died of a heart attack. She graduated from UC Santa Barbara at 20 years old and after a few years moved to New York City.


During her time in New York, Laime got involved with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and joined the sketch Maude team Gunderson! in 2007.

In 2010, Laime released the first episode of the podcast Totally Laime. She hosted the show with her husband Andy Rosen and would chat with a guest, usually an actor or improviser from the Los Angeles comedy scene. In 2011, Totally Laime won the Earwolf Challenge a reality podcasting competition where the winner was awarded a distribution contract with Earwolf. Totally Laime joined the Earwolf network and was part of the network until the show first ended in January 2015. In 2018, Totally Laime was rebooted and started releasing new episodes again, but it was no longer related to the Earwolf network.

Totally Married was a podcast that Laime hosted with her husband Andy Rosen from 2012 to 2018. This show did not feature guests and covered the married life of Laime and Rosen.

It was inspired by her podcast of the same name. CBS did not go forward with the project to pilot. In 2018, the script for Totally Laime was performed before a live audience and released as part of the Dead Pilot's Society podcast.
