Brief info

Laura Kallio is a Disability Advocate, at SAIL, The Disability Network of the Upper Peninsula. Her greatest passion is assisting individuals who wish to accomplish their dreams, especially those who feel that those dreams may be impossible. Laura’s passion stems from motivating others in a way that ignites their desires and assists them in achieving their success. She has several years of experience assisting others as they strive to overcome a multitude of obstacles.

Laura attended Northern Michigan University, where she studied Neuroscience, and Cognitive Behavioral Studies.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family, on a tennis court/pickleball court with her daughter, Campbell, or learning how to change the oil/add washer fluid on a truck from her son, Cameron. She also enjoys taking an excessive number of daily walks with her “head of household”, an energetic chocolate lab named Oakley.



A Few Kind Words

"Disability Network has allowed me to share ways to deal with social issues, given me new ideas about technology and other accommodations, helped me to share and release stress, and increased my self esteem."

Geri Taeckens

"As an intern at SAIL, I have been able to direct many people toward programs or organizations that may help people live more independently. Every time a goal is accomplished, the feeling of success is totally noticeable. Even with one client at a time, the community is noticing that this organization cares about our clients and the communities in which they serve."

Jennifer Webber

"I want to improve acceptance, community integration and employment opportunities for people in my community who have disabilities. They are individuals with strengths and challenges just like everyone else."
