Hi... I’m Laura
I believe that women’s wisdom is one of our planet’s most precious and sacred resources, and that feminine heart-centered leadership is the key to saving the world.
It is because of this that I have committed my life to inspiring as many women and girls as possible to reclaim their inner power and strength, and to heal and break free from any false limitations so they can reach their full potential in this lifetime.
All women are welcome here in our programs and offerings. This is a community inclusive of all walks and paths, because deep inside we all want to experience happiness and a life authentic to our dreams and desires.
But the truth is, it isn’t always easy to get there.
I had my share of hardships and challenges in life, and I come from a background that includes a broken family, drug and alcohol abuse by age 11, love and approval addiction, perfectionism, severe depression and anxiety, and disordered eating and exercise bulimia. I have faced numerous health challenges and fertility problems, and lost many pregnancies before I was able to finally have my own children.
I also struggled for years financially to make ends meet, and stumbled through many business ventures trying to find my authentic feminine way of expressing my work in the world while still creating abundance and financial freedom.
Though I knew I had incredible gifts to share, my outer life was not always a reflection of what I knew was possible, and this was terribly painful and frustrating at times.
I know what it’s like to feel defeated, sometimes debilitated, by the weight of the past, and to feel just plain overwhelmed trying to do it all.
But through the years, I have stayed the course and trusted in God’s guidance for my life. Even in my times of darkness, I always felt a calling within me to live an authentic life of love, purpose, and service.
I came to discover that underneath it all, I was always guided by my own inner Wise Woman, my intuition, and the voice of my own feminine Soul deep inside.
I couldn’t always hear Her, and it has definitely taken time to cultivate my intuition and inner guidance system.
But over the years I have learned to trust this part of myself. This deeper voice inside has always brought me back home to my own truth, and it helped me reclaim my power to create a life of abundance and fulfillment on all levels.
Just like me, I know you also have all the wisdom and power within you to navigate anything you are faced with, and this inner wisdom will guide you to find true fulfillment, and create the life of YOUR dreams.
I know, like me, you likely feel a calling inside of you to do something special with your life, and to share your gifts with the world in a lucrative and abundant way.
And I believe you have the power to do that.
I am honored to be here as a coach, sister, mentor, and friend… and I hope you find a way we can support you on your path. I want to thank you for taking the time to explore this work and our programs. I have created a pathway of healing, empowerment, wholeness, and leadership for women that I hope will serve you as powerfully as it has served me.
My own journey has taught me to:
Remember the truth of who I am,
Reclaim my power to create the life of my dreams,
Inspire and Lead others to do the same.
I hope you enjoy exploring all of my programs and offerings, and please reach out if we can support you in any way!

but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.”
