Laura ValenciaWomen’s Wellness Outreach Specialist

Laura was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia and moved to Alaska at a young age, making Anchorage her second home. Her ability to communicate in Spanish and English has opened many opportunities to work closely with the Hispanic community and to offer her skills to those who are less likely to seek help due to the language barrier. Laura graduated from the University of Alaska with a Major in Health Science. She loves to spend time with family and friends and really enjoys staying active by dancing, doing indoor and outdoor sports and playing with her Husky.
