Lara has deemed herself a humorist at the behest of the voices in her head, who happen to find her simply hilarious. She is also the mother of five... two of whom are teens, which may account for her tenuous grip on sanity. Her fifth child is her personal blog, Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom. A writer-by-trade-caffeine-addict-by-necessity, Lara is prone to serious bouts of cabin fever which she self medicates by writing about travel for outlets from USA Today to popular travel blogs, and corporate publications. Oh yeah, she has a real job, too: Director of Marketing and Creative Development for CertifKid.
