​​​​​​​​​​Laura Kristi Cronin is an award-winning author, certified kids yoga instructor, dōTERRA wellness advocate, actress, model and mother of two. She is also the sole owner and operator of her online jewelry store, Wrapped in a Mala. It is Mrs. Cronin’s mission to spread as much love, healing and happiness as possible. “Whether it’s a six-year-old boy finding comfort reading my children’s book, or a 60-year-old woman meditating with her new mala beads, I simply want the world to be open to the magic the universe has to offer,” Laura says. “It’s there if we allow ourselves to see it!”

For nearly twenty years, Laura has been a major influence in the Denver media scene.  She has hosted dozens of national tv shows, starred in many national, regional and local commercial spots, and has graced the pages of today's most popular magazines.  She has worked with clients such as Coors, Volvo, Bass Pro, Nike, Craftsy, 5280, Real Simple, Sports Authority, Frontier Airlines, Pearle Vision, Comcast SportsNet, Turner Media and many more.  With her quick wit and "try anything" attitude, Laura has found herself in over 130 million households doing everything from skeet shooting in Pennsylvania to walking the red carpet on the Beauty & Fashion Channel.  

Laura is passionate about making a positive footprint on the planet. Alongside her husband and two children, she helps to feed the homeless with the proceeds from her jewelry shop.

Laura’s hobbies revolve around a healthy lifestyle and the great outdoors. Yoga, meditation and "mom-ing" are her priority, but as a Colorado native, she also enjoys hiking, fishing, four-wheeling, skiing and spending time with her family and their rescue dog, Bo​b.
