About Laura

Since I'm not a big fan of talking about myself or boring people with "about me" stories, I'll list what I love, what I know, and my background.

What I love: (not in any list of priorities...except for family and friends)

Family and friends - I'm one of 6 kids, I have four children, a beautiful stepdaughter, and 4 grandchildren.

Empowering others -Especially women! We're just too hard on ourselves.

Delicious Food - Cooking it and eating it.

Anything that sparkles...anything!

Books and audiobooks Everything from thrillers to self-empowerment.

Exercise - Weights, yoga, and spin are my top 3.

Learning - Especially Science-ESPECIALLY biology.

Educating others - I truly believe that knowledge is power.

The Ocean Everything about it.


What I know: (At least some of the big stuff)

Cancer is a part of my body - Although I would prefer not to have cancer in me, I also won't allow myself to hate my body or let cancer direct my life.

Recovering from breast cancer needs to be talked about - We don't just go back to normal.

Happiness heals - You HAVE to find ways to integrate joy into your life every day. A "fight" mentality is the opposite of a "healing" mentality. You must learn to love yourself.

Painful emotions are like a leak in the plumbing - You can try to plug them up, but they'll find another crack to leak through until you eventually give them the attention they need.

Gratitude is not all encompassing - You can be grateful for life and still not like your muffin top!

You have all the answers inside of you - Sometimes you just need a guide to show you where they are, and help you trust yourself. 

We are all connected - Being part of a community of like minded people makes you stronger.

Real food, physical activity, good sleep and mindful thinking are the pillars of health - Not being skinny.
