Laura J. Ingalls is a graduate of Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Wellcoaches, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She began her professional career as a comedic actress and singer. While enjoying great success on the stage, her own health and well-being needs led her to pursue formal education in the field of coaching, personal training, wellness, and holistic health. In wellness, she discovered a second passion in life that equaled her love of the theater. She developed and taught classes for the Orlando Weight Management and Nutrition Center in Orlando, FL, and became a marathon coach for Team in Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the largest endurance sports training program in the world. A move back to her hometown of Boston brought her into the field of worksite wellness as a Wellness Program Manager and Health Coach for Massachusetts-based corporations. She currently resides in Massachusetts, where she runs a private health coaching practice. She has raised thousands of dollars for charity as a marathon runner and Ironman triathlete, and is a passionate supporter of grassroots free fitness movements.
