JOURNALING EXPERT & CREATIVE COACH

Fueled by the understanding that everyone alive has a unique creative voice, Laura Rubin launched AllSwell, with the purpose of educating people about the wide-ranging, meaningful benefits of journaling. Since establishing AllSwell a decade ago, Rubin has changed the cultural narrative around “keeping a journal,” empowering individuals in the process. A passionate champion for the written word, she grounds her group experiences and 1:1 creative coaching sessions in scientific research to shift the perception of this accessible modality for greater mental, emotional and physiological wellbeing. Rubin’s mission is big -- helping people wake up to their own voice, personal path and radical self-worth through creativity.
