Whisper Running welcomes guest speaker Laura Demeri, a colleague and dear friend of Coach Dave’s, to speak to runners and parents of Whisper on the topic of Nutrition and how it relates to running performance and personal health. Parents and runners are encouraged to attend this free event, which is for all runners training with Whisper. Please see Laura’s bio below:
Bio: Laura Demeri received her Masters of Science in Nutrition and Exercise Science from Queens College in New York City. While in school, she became disenchanted with the information studied under the guise of nutrition and attended the Natural Gourmet Institute to receive a professional chef’s certificate in health supportive cooking. It was during this time that she learned how to nourish the body, mind and soul. Laura moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2005 and taught at Clark College and Portland Community College for over a decade where she honed her skills as an educator. Her current role as a Health Coach with Kaiser Permanente taught her the skill of motivational interviewing as a new way to connect, engage, empower and inspire those she works with. Laura is certified by the Health Sciences Institute as a Certified Chronic Care Professional and Registered Health Coach, by the American College of Sports Medicine as a Fitness Instructor, by Power Pilates as an instructor, and is currently pursuing a certification by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and by the Mindsight Institute in Interpersonal Neurobiology.
