Expertise & Vision
We’ve partnered with the best in the world to create and support Bear’s mission in becoming a leader in children’s nutrition while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for kids. Take a look at our leadership team!
As a leading pediatric dietitian at a top children’s hospital for over a decade, Laura has experience with the nutritional challenges of all ages of children. She used this experience and her in-depth knowledge of human nutrition to help formulate the nutrient profile of our Bears products so that kids receive the necessary nutrition to help promote normal growth and development. Laura believes in promoting foods first to meet nutritional needs, but when that isn’t possible a high-quality product is beneficial to ensure children receive what they need to grow healthy and strong. With a sensible and realistic approach to pediatric nutrition, Laura recognizes the challenges of families’ busy on-the-go schedules and wanted to provide a product that is tasty and wholesome that parents can feel good about. Laura lives with her husband, son, and two dogs on the east coast. She enjoys spending her free time traveling, volunteering as a coach with the Special Olympics, playing with her son, and spending time with family and friends.
