She's also been a guest on podcasts and blogs in the UK and USA.
Laura chose this path after a successful career as a features writer because instead of writing about animals from outside and hoping people would listen, she could actually help bridge the gulf that has divided humans from other animals—to help humans understand the animals in their lives and in their care, and also to reawaken their own unique intuitive gifts so that eventually animal communicators like her will be unnecessary. Laura’s chosen to embody the change she wishes to see in the world.
