A former teacher and head of the Visual Arts Department of a fine arts school, she now incorporates the use of expressive art for people, of all ages, who need more than words to find
or express themselves.
In this capacity Laura was humbled and honoured to be asked to work with, and represent, our first nations people through a large art exhibition during the 2013 New Westminster Cultural Crawl in conjunction with the TRC (Truth & Reconciliation Commission) National Summit.
Laura graduated with honours and was granted an Academic Achievement Award for knowledge and comprehension in Counselling Psychology. She continues to educate herself but also thinks that her life experience gives her the compassion and understanding that academic knowledge alone can not give.
Born and raised on the West Coast of Canada, Laura is very much grounded and attuned with the natural elements offered by the ocean, mountains and rainforests of the region.
My personal story is one of many challenges and adversities, as well as celebrations and rewards.
I am humbled by, and grateful for that which gave me the opportunity to grow stronger, wiser and closer to my essence and authentic self.
My journey has been blessed to be shared with special people who have helped me through the most difficult of times.
I strive to continue to learn, discover and be thankful for everything, including that which was painful., for it is thanks to the pain that I am able to experience internal
peace, understanding & joy.
