L.Roll

Laura holds a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from Arizona State University and is a Registered Dietitian. She worked as a clinical dietitian in the Rogue Valley prior to starting a family in 1999. Her continued interest in the area of wellness has lead to a study of yoga and the sister science of Ayurveda. Laura is the mother of two wonderful children, Shea and Bryn, and currently works managing the home and pursing the 500 hour yoga teacher training. She enjoys spending time with her children, cooking and merging with nature. Her personal experience with CTSN has opened the door to a far deeper understanding of personal wellness as it relates to mind, body and spirit; this has inspired her to help others gain such a perspective.
