Saundra Maisey is a Certified Laughter Leader (CLL) with the World Laughter Tour, based out of Columbus, OH.  She has held that title since completing training in August of 2005.  As a CLL, Saundra leads groups of all kinds and sizes to help people find more laughter in their lives and understand why laughter is so good for us.  The physical act of laughing helps to increase the endorphin levels (these make us feel good), and lower the cortisol levels (these cause us to feel stressed) in our bodies.  Join us for an evening of laughter and find more ways to put laughter back in your life.
