Laura is a California state licensed Acupuncturist originally from Long Island, NY. After graduating from SUNY New Paltz with a bachelor's degree in English Literature, Laura found herself wanting to do more. A friend in Oregon introduced her to herbal medicine and, shortly after, a Long Island friend recommended acupuncture. So began the path to her truth calling.
In 2004 Laura began her education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in NYC. Half-way through her studies, Laura decided to explore life on the West Coast and moved to California to finish her studies at Pacific's San Diego campus. There she obtained a Master's degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
During school, Laura assisted at North Shore Acupuncture in Encinitas, CA. She then spent two years assisting and practicing at The Healing Sanctuary in Tustin, CA. In December of 2010, she moved to Northern California and co-founded Earth and Air Wellness in Walnut Creek.
Laura has grown a strong interest and continues to educate herself in the areas of nutrition and family planning. She specifically treats conditions involved with fertility and pre-natal care.
Laura has always had a strong sense that there is more to health care than what the Western model of medicine has to offer and she has made it her mission to help others gain back power over their health. She believes that the first step towards wellness is knowledge and she strives to educated and inspire. In 2007, she created her blog, , where she shares with others simple tools for cultivating wellness in an “everyday” lifestyle.
