Laura joined the TEA board in 2013. She is an environmental attorney, and she lives and works in California’s Bay Area with her beloved old dog. Laura’s erythromelalgia is widespread, affecting her face, ears, hands, knees, and feet. After developing EM, Laura began to research as much as she could about the condition and found TEA. The information and support provided by TEA was so helpful that she decided she wanted to give back and soon joined TEA’s board. As a board member, Laura puts her years of nonprofit experience to work, focusing on outreach and fundraising to further TEA’s mission of education, awareness, and research about EM.
