Hello, I'm Laura!
In school I was not into sports; I ran a little slower and was not coordinated with a ball. One thing I enjoyed was exercise, but the how or where to practice was unbeknownst to me.
Fast forward a few years- following my undergrad I obtained a graduate certificate in health promotion and worksite wellness, trained as a group fitness instructor, worked in corporate wellness near The Canadian Rockies, and later earned a Master's Degree in Physical Activity and Health in Germany. I discovered that helping support others to be more active and adopt healthier behaviors is my cup of tea.
I started Green Blue Active to share my passion with others, but the kicker is I encourage people to increase physical activity outdoors in green and blue spaces. Why? It's simple- green spaces are packed with health and mental health benefits. It's so fascinating that I wrote my thesis on it, and now it is time to share the knowledge, and increase the public perception of green exercise.
Come join me in the forest! Interested in having me visit your organization, school, or youth club in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern or Berlin region? Let's chat!
