Our Director, Lara brings with her wide and varied background that includes public service, journalism and marketing. As a member of the Unalome House team, she puts all of that experience to work on behalf of our guests. Caring for others is a passion Lara has had for most of her life. In 2017, while serving as the non-medical Director of a small Functional Medicine and hormone practice, Lara earned a clinical certification in HeartMath Interventions and completed a coaching certificate with The Institute for Functional Medicine that focused on supporting those dealing with Alzhiemers and dementia. This mom of four, podcast host, Navy veteran, and former travel writer continues to make connecting with others the core of her joy in life.
