Hi! Welcome to Cultivate Your Wellness. I’m Laura. I’m a licensed acupuncturist, wife, and mother. I love yoga, traveling, music, and spending time with family and friends. I’ve been known to stress the small stuff while remaining calm and collected on the outside. And I’m always happy to be there for a friend.

I grew up on the south shore of Long Island, NY and moved to California with my then boyfriend in 2007. Having never lived together we often describe the move as our “make or break.” We were married in 2012 and are still married today! We lived in Southern California for a few years before finally settling in the East Bay of San Francisco where I opened up my acupuncture clinic which I’ve been successfully building since 2011. In 2013 we had our first daughter, Josephine, and in 2017, Adeline was born.

I launched Cultivate Your Wellness in 2009 when I was newly licensed as a for a way to share my knowledge of wellness. What it morphed into was a travel guide of my own path towards wellness – a path that is ever changing and that I lose track of just like everyone else but that I make a goal to stay on and share with others as best I can!
