Laura Tempesta

Board Member since: 2018

RS Angels: Ava and Juliana

About Laura: Laura has been involved with the organization since her twin daughters were diagnosed with Rett Syndrome in 2008.  Back then, an RSAM event with her husband Eric felt like date night!  In the years since, Laura, along with her son Peter and family has attended many RSAM events and raised money for research when possible.  Laura has found the connection with other families to be an invaluable and meaningful part of living life with Rett Syndrome especially in the darkest times and hopes that RSAM will continue to serve as a source of strength and inspiration for all. Trained as an occupational therapist, Laura spent many years at home holding down the fort and now works primarily with children in a nursery school classroom.
