My journey into the world of health and wellness had a somewhat unconventional start. My initial training led me to a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Kansas and a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma. With a strong interest in helping children and families, I began working as a therapist at a local children’s hospital. Following my time as a therapist, I jumped into the world of pharmaceutical sales where I continued to enjoy working with doctors and other healthcare practitioners yet it did not take long to see the challenges and limitations of a pure pharmaceutical approach to health. Following the birth of my first of three children, I decided to stay home to care for my growing family. It was during this time that I began reading more and more about functional medicine and holistic health. I started implementing what I was learning in my own life and began to see dramatic improvements in my health and the health of my family- I knew I had found my calling!
It was then I decided to obtain a Holistic Health Coaching certificate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. Once my training was completed, I started a solo health coaching practice for busy women and families. Being part of a busy family myself, I realized the importance of making small, sustainable changes that build over time to create an overall healthy lifestyle. I learned that not one dietary theory or plan is right for everyone, and it is important to meet people where they are and help them make simple, yet impactful steps toward their health goals. As a therapist, I am also uniquely positioned to help individuals with other aspects of their life such as time management and reducing stress. Although I enjoyed my solo practice, I knew I could make much more of an impact by partnering with a physician that also believed in a functional and integrative approach to healthcare. When I heard about Premier Integrative Health and met Dr. Dyer, I instantly knew this was the right place for me.
I look forward to this new chapter in my life and having the opportunity to help our patients achieve optimal health.

How I ended up as a health coach has a lot to do with my passion for people, and their overall mind/body wellness. Kansas City born and raised, I lived the typical Midwest lifestyle, and over time I developed some not so awesome habits. Hey, it happens right?! When I was about 19 I decided to take my ventures out to southern California for several years and that’s where the change began to happen. I saw that people didn’t age the same there, and they didn’t have the extra weight and health problems that a lot of us Midwest folk do. The difference I saw really inspired me to look deeper into the “WHY” of overall wellness. Through the years I have read dozens of books and spent hundreds of hours studying and listening and learning until I eventually found Premier Integrative Health and Dr. Dyer. This is when my real schooling began at the Institute of Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.
My most liberating career for the last 7 years has been as a Yoga teacher. I have seen my students grow and change and become free for the first time not only in their body, but also their mind AND emotions. I’m sure its been more inspiring for me to teach my incredible students than it is for them to receive my teachings. My journey in teaching Yoga has truly blessed me more that I could have ever imagined. As time has gone by I have realized that I must do more. I am ready to take on the whole picture with my clients and really show them their potential and work with their own God-given strengths to achieve their personal goals.
That being said lets go back to my passion for people and how Health Coaching seems to just fit in every way. I am so excited to continue down this road with you and share my 15+ years of knowledge and expertise. Coaching others one-on-one is such a privilege and fulfills my desire to develop others to be their absolute best. No matter the goal I believe we can achieve it. Im looking forward to showing you just how ALIVE you can really be!
For almost a decade, I have assisted people pursue their health care goals. The daughter of a third generation osteopathic physician, I grew up knowing that a healthy person must find harmony in mind, body, and spirit – that it’s all connected. I have always known that to fulfill my spirit, I need to help people on their path to being happy and healthy. That is why I’m excited to be part of the Premier Integrative Health team. With patience and care, I will be able to help you understand the practitioner’s recommendations related to nutrition, supplements, specialty testing, and holistic diets.
When I’m not at the office, I assist people with food prep, shopping, pantry/kitchen makeovers, and I even help with event planning for the health conscious entertainer! I spend most of my free time with my husband Cliff – traveling, gardening, camping, or dancing to live music. I am also passionate about art and photography, and I LOVE watching documentaries.

Robin Lau, R.N., L.M.T.
I first began to think about practicing massage years ago when I was a Registered Nurse in Intensive Care. I began using therapeutic touch therapies to bring comfort to my critically ill patients and their families. These methods enabled me to bring a real sense of humanity into a very mechanical and stressful environment, reducing fear and agitation, and facilitating rest and healing.
Some years later, during my time as a Hospice nurse, I used light massage and therapeutic touch to convey compassion and empathy, and to help relieve loneliness. However, since much of my nursing career was dictated by administrative factors and a demanding schedule, I decided it was time for a change. I was hungry for a lifestyle that would combine my dedication to healthcare with a way to feed my own soul.
I completed an extended massage therapy program at Wellspring School of Allied Health and learned to turn my way of thinking around. I now enjoy being able to utilize my senses in different ways, to trust my intuition more than ever, and to be truly present in the moment. As a Board-Certified, Licensed Massage Therapist, I am fulfilled by combining art and science every time I work with my clients.
Joining the team at Premier Integrative Health has given me a wonderful opportunity to educate others on the importance of unifying mind, body and spirit. Here we are unified in empowering people to gain confidence in using their own strengths to heal themselves and thrive.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and daughter, two cats and friends. I’m passionate about fitness, soaking up the outdoors, reading, watching movies and listening to good music.
