Laura Loughan Young

Nelson Editor - Advertising

First I am a mother of 3 children 23, 18 & 5 and have lived in NZ for 14 yrs. I love my hometown of Riwaka! I've had years of experience in media and promotions. As I've gotten older, I am more interested in health and happy living. I've worked in pharmacies for 2 yrs and absolutely loved learning about ailments and vitamins/meds. I really enjoyed the diversity of clientele as you always get in media also. People are amazing, resilient and downright caring. I'm always amazed at the optimism and interest in self care from the majority. There's always a learning opportunity with every new person you meet.. Also known as curious George by my co workers, I ask the questions people are afraid to in case it's not correct or seems stupid.. In my opinion, any genuine enquiry can never be stupid. We are here to learn.. So why not?
