About Me


pic: Laurie M I'm Laurie Mikulasek Simpkinson. I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and grew up in various East Bay cities until graduating from Livermore High School in 1991.

After having an enormously fun time and a few earth-shattering classes, I graduated with my B.A. in Philosophy from Humboldt State University (1995). I then spent a year living in Arizona and Oregon before returning to the Bay Area to earn my Master's Degree in Consciousness Studies from J.F.K. University (1998).

I have taught philosophy classes at the college and high school levels, and worked in research at The Institute of Noetic Sciences, which included conducting research and co-authoring a paper with the world-renowned physicist, Dr. Amit Goswami (featured in the film What the Bleep Do We Know?). I have also been trained as Researcher with the Lucidity Institute, and have conducted several experiments at their former lab at Stanford University. And, of course, I've waited on more tables than I care to remember!

More recently I have been pursuing acting (see Actress and Model links to the left), life drawing (see Artist link), my youth leadership role with the UUFSCC, and of course doing the Crazy Mommy Dance of juggling three kids. Over the next few years I hope to have the threads of a career in writing, so especially stay tuned to the Author link!

I live in a small town in the Santa Cruz Mountains with my husband, our three kids, one wack-o kitty and now one very energetic little dog.
