Laura is a lover of life, equally thrilled by the beauty of the mountains and the depths of the sea. An avid surfer, snowboarder, sustainable agriculturalist, yogi, and holistic health counselor, Laura is equally at home in the rainforest, mountains, and sheep farms of the West Coast’s Pacific Northwest as on the rugged coastline and surf breaks of her beloved second home, Kauai, Hawaii.
Born and raised in Olympia, Washington, Laura received a Bachelor of Arts and Science in Sustainable Agriculture and Health Science from The Evergreen State College. While earning this degree, Laura worked extensively with local farmers and gained a deep understanding of pastured systems, organic beef and dairy production, local food sustainability, and of the complexity of our current agricultural system. Laura is a certified health counselor, she received her training in Health Counseling and Nutrition at Integrative Nutrition in New York City. She has learned over 100 dietary theories and practiced holistic health and healing methods from around the globe.
In addition, in 2007, Laura attended the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute in Seattle and became a Washington State Licensed Esthetician. As a skin therapist, she works to diagnose skin conditions with ancient Ayruvedic healing techniques, and uses Hawaiian skincare products and homemade natural products to address the skin conditions. As a yogini, she has learned the art of movement and ancient breathing techniques that lead to calmness in the mind and body. Laura believes that true health requires a balance of proper nutrition, wellness, and movement. Laura offers individual and group health coaching, helping individuals form healthy life habits, increase knowledge of the mind and body, and improve their ability to live a happier, healthier, more vibrant life.
Laura takes pleasure in striving to live in a holistic and balanced way, yet she has learned over the years to find humor in daily life’s ups and downs, to lighten up and to go with the flow. She enjoys learning and growing, and strives to nurture and care for herself, her community, and the planet.
