Get to Know Laurie
My Core Beliefs.
I believe passionately in the power of collaborations and partnerships. I establish a collaborative mindset in every coaching engagement regardless of size: one-on-one relationships or groups. I have personal experience seeing how partnerships bring out the best of everyone while stimulating insights and creative energy to foster new ideas. Working together enhances engagement, builds in accountability and provides a built-in fan club for encouragement and support.
Coaching built on experience.
I received my MBA from the University of Michigan and came to transformational coaching based on personal experience in career and organization change. I spent 15 years in a variety of marketing leadership roles at Kraft Foods including brand, new product development, global strategy and partnership development. During my 7 years at Visa, Inc., I led consulting teams and engagements with top issuers of Visa’s products to build their payment businesses. I am a Certified Professional Coach and an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner.
In addition to transformational coaching, I am the founder of a local women’s networking organization that has grown to nearly 200 members in less than six months. This passion project reflects my commitment to collaboration and community. It has given me the opportunity to meet and connect with many new and energizing individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Between my work and my personal life – my collaborative community runs broad and deep. I look forward to sharing it with you.
