435 | Sculpting Your Own Path with Laura Roehrick

In today’s episode, Eric is joined by Laura Roehrick.  Currently at age 69, Laura was diagnosed with ADHD at 40, has been a registered nurse for 48 years, and has found her brain wiring to be both a blessing and a curse.  

Laura is also a pioneer of preventative diabetic foot care nursing, having created a method of nail sculpture that can be both limb-saving and life-saving. She has been married for 37 years, has two daughters, is a grandma of 5, and is also a crafter, designer, artist, former actress, herbal medicine maker, avid knitter, loves sewing, has traveled the world, and has colorful stories of being raised on a houseboat! 

You’ll also hear about Laura’s lessons in business, the consequences of lacking clear and effective communication, what she has experienced as being a nurse herself, and the importance of diabetic foot care. 

Then, you’ll also hear how she landed a role in a movie from 1980 that is banned in the UK, what Laura would change if she could go back in time, and  ways she is optimizing her health.
