Laura Brooks

SPAR Disability Advocate


My name is Laura Brooks, and I am a Disability Advocate at SAIL with a lot of background in customer service. I also have done direct care working with people with disabilities.

I am a lifelong resident of the U.P. and have a degree in Environmental Science for Northern Michigan University. I spend most of my free time enjoying the outdoors, running the trails with my sweet dogs, kayaking, and spending time with my husband. I look forward to building relationships and helping motivate people of all abilities to live their best and happiest lives.


What Our Team Has To Say.

"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."
Kris Keranen
"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
"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."
