“My name is Laura and I’m from Flushing, NY. I recently moved to Pensacola, FL with my boyfriend who is a Student Naval Aviator with the Marine Corps. I currently work for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, and am getting my masters degree in Public Health. One of my favorite things to do is travel. Even if it’s just for a weekend getaway, I love to venture out and see the world. My boyfriend is a private pilot, so we usually get to take our trips on little four-seater Cessna’s. I hope to be able to visit Australia and Japan some time in the future.
Aside from that, I have a new passion for cooking! Before I moved, my diet consisted of whatever was fast and easy, but now I love to experiment and use different recipe with a little twist! Its a way for me to be more conscious about what I’m eating and be creative with food.”

Nice to meet you, Laura! Good luck with your studies! It’s great that you’re working to help people with chronic illnesses. My husband is orginally from Pensacola, and I used to live in Elmhurst, Queens. It’s a small world. : )
Wow! That is a small world! And thanks for the kind thoughts. Semester 1 or grad school is almost over ::thank goodness::
You’re welcome. : ) Hope you get to enjoy your break.
Hi Laura. You emailed me in 2009 regarding a documentary I was planning on lymphedema, and I see that I never replied. However, I met an NYC student who has lymphedema within the last couple years, and your name rings a bell – was that you? Please write me. My brother and I are gearing up to actually make this documentary on lymphedema, and at the time you said you’d be interested in participating.
I would be very interested in hearing about your documentary on lymphoedema, i have the disease and would be very interested in participating jane
Hi Jane! Thanks for writing I never did move ahead with the documentary, instead working on a storytelling performance. I still think a documentary is a great idea and I’d love working on creating one if I had a small team to work with. For now, this is the performance I put together. The video and sound are unfortunately sub-par but they get better as it goes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeA_LzAngG8
I’m super interested in participating in your documentary on lymphedema also. I live in Montana and have primary lymphedema all over but primarily in both legs but manage to live a full active life in our beautiful mountain paradise.
