Congratulations to our Salud Volunteer of the Month - 

Laura Bona

Laura started volunteering at Salud in the summer of 2017. What she enjoys the most from volunteering is “meeting the other talented Salud volunteers and working with talented young people in class”. She is a dietitian by training and has been teaching preschool for the past 19 years. Volunteering at Salud has allowed her to get back into the kitchen working with food and children, her two greatest passions. She loves to see the joy in a camper’s eyes when they taste something they have made on their own. All the better if it’s healthy. The best meal she ever had was a simple Thanksgiving dinner with her parents and four brothers and sisters in their family home in frosty Rochester, NY. Turkey, mom’s stuffing (not dressing), dad’s mashed potatoes, cranberry orange relish and grandma’s famous pecan pie. All of her best food memories are tied up in family and food. At home, her husband and daughter love her Paella—heavy on the seafood and spices, but not so much on the saffron rice. Laura earned her BS in Food and Nutrition from Rochester Institute of Technology and a Master’s in Education from Mercer University. She worked as a hospital dietitian for years and switched careers to education, and now she works at the Kingswood United Methodist Church Preschool in Dunwoody. She lives with husband, Joe, in Sandy Springs and their daughter, Olivia, practices law in Los Angeles.
