Welcome – I’m Laurie, and I’m glad you’re here!

I’m a professional researcher. 

I’m also a wife, mother (young!) grandmother, business owner, health enthusiast, and hopelessly devoted to my two dogs!


Coco and Millie (both Havanese)


I lost my mother several years ago to a preventable disease which was missed in its early stages by her doctors.

I started a blog for caregivers, and found that working on that first blog helped me move past the sadness and rage.

Since then, I’ve become passionate about researching medical and lifestyle topics, and distilling my findings into understandable, actionable information.

I have no patience for click bait, fluff pieces, or slide shows, so you won’t find that here.

What you will find is up-to-date, well-researched information (and opinion!).


My goal is simple: to share accurate, useful information to enhance your enjoyment of good health, family and home.


If you learn something here, and come away feeling more confident and optimistic, I’ve accomplished what I set out to.
