Life in the Laugh Lane
Bobbe White is a nationally recognized expert on humor and laughter therapy. She has been featured in the New York Times, Family Circle, First Magazine, and Newsweek Japan, on “Laughter as a current trend in the workplace.” She was one of the first Laughter Leaders certified in the world by the World Laughter Tour, Inc. (Seriously!)
Bobbe’s work history includes Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club and Lodge, Orlando, where she was the swim pro (like a golf pro, but with more water). She has been in banking for over 3 decades, through 3 economic cycles, and 3 hair colors! Her success as a speaker and trainer is her conviction to what she believes are the two basic tenets of the adult learning experience: food and fun.
She is the author of Life in the Laugh Lane, a book all about navigating life’s twists and turns with laughter. Dividing her time between her company, Try Laughter! Inc., her husband and their two children, she is constantly embroiled in life’s twists and turns. At work or home, she uses laughter to combat the stress we all experience daily. When that doesn’t work, she heads for the golf course, swimming pool or enlists the support of her new therapeutic tool, Sam the beagle.
Bobbe is a member of the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor, Society for International Humor Studies, and World Laughter Tour, Inc. She is president and founder of Try Laughter! Inc., a speaking and training group. Bobbe resides in Quincy, IL.
