As a working mother of 4 children, Laura understands the demands of today’s busy lifestyle and the detrimental impact that the dietary and lifestyle choices so many of us make in the interest of convenience can have. After spending over 20 years in the financial industry and about 5 years of hard work and planning, Laura was able to leave that world behind to pursue her passion for ancestral health and fitness.
Laura earned her first nutrition/health coach certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012 after suffering severe health issues that were only alleviated through diet and lifestyle changes, rather than conventional medical interventions. She then aligned herself with the Primal Health Coach Institute in 2013 to coach others through long term lifestyle change using the ancestral health model that has helped her maintain her health and optimal weight effortlessly.
Laura also became a CrossFit affiliate owner and trainer in 2013 and has been using Primal Health Coaching since the gym opened as a way to add more value, differentiate her box from all the others and to add additional sources of revenue. She is committed to coaching others into a healthy, real food, holistic lifestyle that best suits the unique metabolic and lifestyle needs of each individual.
Laura joined the Primal Health Coach Institute as a team member in 2016 as The Director of Admissions. She is also a faculty member and coach supporting, guiding and educating new Primal Health Coaches.
In 2020 Laura and her family moved to Florida where she continues to coach and is rebuilding her private practice while also supporting others who want to build a career out of their passion for health and fitness with the Primal Health Coach Institute.
Laura’s Certifications Include: CF Level 1, MovNat Level 1, Certified Primal Health Coach, IIN Certified Holistic Health Coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer and NASM Women’s Fitness Specialist.
Laura’s Top Tips
- Be very clear as to what you want but also why you want it – dig deep.
- Satiety first – build a meal that keeps you full for as long as possible.
- Exercise – ideally prioritise strength training but more important is something you will do consistently.
