Lauri is a Certified Dream Analyst, syndicated columnist, author, popular radio personality and member of IASD, the International Association for the Study of Dreams, an international organization whose purpose, among other things, is to conduct and encourage research into the nature, function, and significance of dreaming.
She spent much of her childhood keeping a dream journal in order to capture all those wonderfully strange adventures she experienced every night. One night, after she had a dream where her deceased grandfather visited her and gave her a life-changing message, she decided to dedicate herself to finding the answers we all seek within our dreams.
Lauri studied Archetypal Psychology and became certified as a Dream Analyst under the tutelage of Katia Romanoff, PhD in 1996. She has since analyzed and researched over 50,000 dreams from people of all walks of life from all over this planet.
In 1998 Lauri launched The Dream Zone®, a weekly dream interpretation column, which helps readers understand how the strange imagery in their dreams is actually helping them to solve problems. The Dream Zone now has over 2.5 million readers and is published in dozens of weekly alternatives and appears on over twenty-five online mags throughout the country and in Canada.
She has been guest on such nationally syndicated radio shows as Art Bell's "Coast to Coast," Playboy Radio, "Nights with Alice Cooper," "Bob & Sheri," Leeza Gibbon's "Leeza at Night," Mancows Morning Madhouse and is a frequent guest on Oprah radio. She is a recurring guest on over forty different stations across the country, has logged over 2800 interviews thus far, and is one of the most requested guests on the morning show circuit.
Lauri has also been featured in Maxim, Modern Bride, Glamour, Woman's World, Prevention, Woman's Day and Cosmo and has analyzed top celebrities' dreams for Globe Magazine and The National Enquirer London.
Her dream-working techniques are so easy and ground-breaking that she has been invited on The View, Good Morning America, The Today Show,CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta special "Sleep," and The Dr. Oz Show.
Lauri is the author of three best-selling dream books, So, What Did You Dream Last Night? Cracking The Dream Code, and most recently Dream On It, which will be published by St. Martin's Press in April of 2011.
Lauri currently resides in Tampa, FL with her "strikingly handsome husband and very loud son." She holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do in order to keep them both in line.
