Our Team

Laura Robin, DO, MPH: :

Dr. Laura is a traditionally trained Osteopathic physician. She was drawn to the Osteopathic Medical philosophy of the body’s interconnectedness to the mind, emotions, and spirit and the celebration of its innate ability to heal itself. Shortly into her career, Dr. Laura chose to dive into the prevention of illness and dis-ease. She was drawn to the immense opportunities to reverse the progression of medical conditions through early identification, then determining and addressing the causes on an individual basis. Further studies in Functional and Integrative Medicine techniques inspired the level of depth in which she now approaches the health of her patients.

Dr. Robin is a 1988 graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed a residency in Public Health and Preventive Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and completed training as a Medical Epidemiologist through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She trained in Integrative Medicine through many courses, workshops and mentoring, and maintained a successful Integrative Medicine practice for 8 years in Bend, Oregon. For 10 years, she served as Medical Director for the Student Health and Wellness Center at Southern Oregon University. During that time, she served on the Jackson County Medical Advisory Committee and Public Health Advisory Board.

For the past 15 years, Dr. Robin has been studying with various teachers and indigenous healers regarding the relationships between personal history, emotions, the body’s energetics, and physical wellness. In 2015, she joined forces with Dr. Tara to adopt a model of care that would really work to support change in the health of their patients and address health issues from multiple perspectives.

Dr. Robin has lived in Oregon since 1995, and in Ashland since 2003. She has an elementary-aged son, loves hiking and most things outside, loves to be social and silly, and also enjoys her quiet moments. She is currently putting much of her energy into her family and making the Rosa Transformational Health Program the best that it can be.

Molly Nickle:

Molly earned her B.A. in Graphic Design with an emphasis in Marketing from Troy University in Troy, Alabama. For the past eight years she has been doing freelance design work helping businesses with logo design, marketing, rebranding, and small scale web services. Being a college athlete, Molly developed a love for healthy cooking and exercise along with sustainable living, which led to cooking becoming a therapeutic and meditative activity for her.

Molly now blends her background in graphic design and marketing with her love of quality, healthy food and helping people become their best self here at Rosa Transformational Health. Helping with program coordination, marketing, developing and teaching cooking classes, and providing coaching and meal planning to our participants, Molly enjoys being able to use her whole range of skills to help improve people’s lives.
