She combines her extensive leadership experience with the science of how people thrive and flourish to empower others to create the life of their dreams. Laura has a unique ability to make the research easily accessible with easy to use tools that positively impact individuals from all over the world through interactive speaking engagements and workshops.

She believes it takes a village to raise a child and contributes to various causes important to her. She developed a resilience program for youth living at a shelter, and a mastermind for small businesses owners called the Flourishing Business Collective. Her greatest joy is coaching people one on one and seeing them uncover long forgotten goals, and step into action with brazen confidence and clarity. She teaches from surviving to thriving in the entrepreneurial world.

On a personal note, she loves travel, connecting with people from diverse cultures and delighting in the unexpected. She knows that for her, a thriving life includes challenging physical activity outdoors, so she continues to work on mastering downhill skiing whether it is in powder or on the bumps.
