Meet the Founder & Kind Fest Visionary
In May of 2015, just 6 months after I was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue, I laid in bed with my girls feeling gratitude for all the ways the power of kindness had supported my quick recovery. I began to imagine the healing that could happen in the world if people knew how to be kinder to themselves, openly receive kindness, and practice kindness more often. I envisioned creating The Kind Fest as the platform to help elevate the power of kindness and create a movement to help heal the world one person at a time. While I don’t claim perfection in kindness, I aspire to learn how I can practice more kindness in everyday living. The more I practice, the more healing, connection, and joy I experience in my life. I’m a big dreamer, an intuition and heart follower, a risk taker, a story teller, an energetic action taker, and passionate about co-creating with kind people who want to make this world a better place.

Laura determined that she would take back her work/life balance and strive to make a difference in people (vs. focusing on “just the work”). Laura recently retired as a way to show herself some priority and kindness through taking control back on her health.
