Laura Kaeppeler Talks About How To Overcome Health Related Obstacles On WTMJ

MILWAUKEE – Laura Kaeppeler shares about the benefits of yoga, and how to overcome health interruptions on The Morning Blend on WTMJ-TV.

In the middle of the pandemic, Gina [Lombardi] had known each other for almost 10 years, and we’ve worked out together for that amount of time.

And we were talking constantly about how interrupted we were by the pandemic, but we always carry on and persevere.

There are more stories like this out there!

So we developed this “Health Interrupted” Podcast, where we want to share inspiring stories of people who have gone through traumatic or difficult health interruptions in their life. Mental, spiritual, physical and emotional challenges, but they’ve found the power within themselves to overcome, rise again and thrive.

Laura Kaeppeler Co-Hosts The ‘Health Interrupted’ Podcast

Interruptions are sometimes just a part of life, but a health problem may just put a stop to your plans.

With your kids, partner, job and life in general, the road to optimal life can be rough. Even if you have the best intentions, something will always jump in your way.

Now you’ve made up your mind, and decided to get your health back on track.

You’ve got your meditation app, your meal plans and set aside time to exercise.

But then life happens, and suddenly there’s no food in the fridge, you’ve slept through your alarm, and there’s no “me” time.

Does this sound familiar?

Join Laura Kaeppeler, former Miss America, and Gina Lombardi, celebrity fitness trainer, as they talk with real people who have attained wellness despite setbacks, and professionals to share their secrets to optimal health.

The “Health Interrupted” Podcast is for you if you’re struggling to get your health back on track, or if you already have a good health plan but you’re searching for suggestions.

Health Interrupted is a community where all of our listeners are supported, encouraged, and inspired to live their healthiest lives. We get right to the point and give actionable knowledge about wellness, nutrition, fitness, exercises, mental and spiritual health, and, of course the products we love that can bring value to your life!

Laura Kaeppeler Miss America 2012


Laura Kaeppeler proudly represented the state of Wisconsin at the Miss America 2012 competition, which was held Saturday Jan. 14, 2012 at The Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

“I was very much at peace at that moment, knowing that I was proud to be standing with her, and that whoever won it would be in good hands,” Laura told The Associated Press.

During her reign as Miss America, Laura Kaeppeler traveled around the world, appearing on television and speaking on behalf of organizations like the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, The Miss America Organization, and her own platform advocating for children of incarcerated parents.

The US News and World Report recently named Laura Kaeppeler one of The Top 100 Women Leaders In STEM.

Laura Kaeppeler Wins Miss America 2012

Miss America 2011 Teresa Scanlan crowned Laura Kaeppeler during the ceremony. Laura, an alum of Carthage College in Wisconsin, won a $50,000 scholarship which she used for her education.

The Miss America 2012 competition was held at the Theatre for the Performing Arts at Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas on January 14.

The preliminary competition saw Kaeppeler win the talent portion, and a $2,000 scholarship.

She performed “Il Bacio” waltz by Luigi Arditi.

Kaeppeler’s platform supported mentoring children of incarcerated parents, the Mentoring Children of Prisoners program.

“I feel like I’ve been called to do this,” Kaeppeler told Huffpost. “I believe my life was pre-written and predestined by a higher power before I was born. What happened in my past is part of that, and (being) Miss America is part of that.”

Laura Kaeppeler wore a white bikini for the lifestyle and fitness competition, a red dress embellished with rhinestones and beads, and a custom black beaded evening gown by Tony Bowls.

During the final round of the Miss America 2012 competition, one of the judges asked Kaeppeler about politics, and if beauty queens should declare their viewpoints.

“Do you think Miss America should be free to declare her political affiliation?” asked Lara Spencer.

“Miss America represents everyone, so I think the message to political candidates is that they represent everyone as well. And so in these economic times, we need to be looking forward to what America needs, and I think Miss America needs to represent all.”

Laura Kaeppeler won the 2012 Miss America competition, and was awarded a $50,000 scholarship.
