Business Experience

My Own Journey

With over twenty years of not for profit fundraising experience, Laurie knows first-hand the pitfalls when our thoughts are not managed properly.

Successfully raising over $40 million, she needed to have a strong sense of belief in herself to achieve such lofty goals.

As a woman whose life was significantly impacted with the life-changing tools she learned through Life Coaching, Laurie pivoted her career so she could help others learn them too!

After receiving her Life Coaching certification, her personal coaching business skyrocketed, receiving a coveted award for business success from The Life Coach School.

But recognition, money and status weren’t the only things she desired. She craved balance and time with the people she loved most – her family.

After an intensive independent study, Laurie developed a transformational program that teaches people how to redefine their success, so they create the life they love; personally and professionally.

Laurie is a walking example of her work and loves the life she has created. Her heart overflows with joy when she is working with her husband (and business partner) and spending time with their three grown children and their TWO adorable grandchildren.
