When Laura moved to Hong Kong with her family in 2011, she quickly realized the need for a single local source of information for those interested in natural health and wellness. It was then she created what is now the region’s largest online, by-invitation-only, Facebook community group called ‘Healthy Living in HK.’ Inspired by the more than 2,700 members, she produced the first bilingual natural health and wellness magazine, Healthy Living Asia. She now keeps the magazine updated online with regular articles, interviews and reviews on HealthyLivingAsia.com and Instagram. Laura also writes about natural health and wellness for local publications and global websites, as well as creating special print editions. You can find her giving presentations on gluten free living, bringing health experts to the city and consulting for local businesses. Her ultimate goal is to help individuals and families find the information, quality food and services they need to live a vibrant life.
In addition to wellness, Laura’s other motivations lie in education. Believing that all children deserve the opportunity to learn and pursue their talents, Laura founded Gifted Alliance in 2013 to support families of high ability children. She is currently working on her Masters in Gifted Education, writes, consults and runs parent workshops.
