Laura Sarah Dowdall is an innovative somatic wellbeing expert, social entrepreneur and accomplished professional dancer with a background in international business and languages.
Having lived in Rome, Berlin, Boston and the UK, working across different industries- Laura has experienced all forms of transitional challenge and change in career, culture and language. Always an advocate for learning and personal development, a near-life threatening accident caused her to re-align her direction and apply her learning to empower a full and healthy recovery.
First-hand life experience and dedicated years of training in the science, philosophy, quantum mechanics and psychology of healing has distinguished her as an innovative whole-person wellness provider. Known for her authentic presence, uplifting energy and creative dynamic, her passion is to educate and empower people to better care for their wellbeing, believing self-care is the key to sustainable health and happiness.
Before concentrating her career in wellbeing and social entrepreneurship – Laura worked for Enterprise Ireland throughout the USA, tech start-ups in Ireland and Dentons International Law Firm in Germany. She attained a First Class Honours Degree in International Commerce and Italian from the Business School at University College Dublin, and completed postgraduate studies at Harvard Business School in International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution and Cross-Cultural Psychology.
She has been interviewed and featured in articles for The Irish Times, The Irish Independent, Positive Life Magazine, International Health Publications, TV3 and Irish radio for her wellbeing expertise.
