My philosophy

Coaching is a collaborative, purposeful partnership rooted in conversation and deep questions. I love talent wayfinding with clients to uncover what lies ahead. I coach those in transition: work, leadership, life, and career. Think of me as the “guide on the side” to support what you what you want to work on to reach your full potential.

Coaching is collaborative, purposeful partnership to support your career goals.

My coaching approach:

  • Creating a client-led agenda for each meeting
  • Probing intentions & goals with deep questions
  • Engaging with reflective tools & activities
  • Decision-making space aligned with your values
  • Identifying action items for follow up & review
  • Supporting the transitions in your work/life

Client Testimonials

Hear from previous coaching clients:

“Laura’s approach and format during these Executive Coaching sessions helped me with self-discovery and developing strategies for positive change. I immediately began to implement these strategies that have empowered me to make changes that have helped me become more effective leader.

~ R.B., AWS Director

“Laura was a great help to me over our sessions. She asked insightful questions and was instrumental in me breaking down barriers I had when it came to my relationship with work. I look forward to continuing my career journey equipped with the tools Laura helped to provide to me.”

~ D.R., Program Manager

“I am transitioning out of higher education and back into client service, but I wasn’t clear what I wanted to do. I had a lot of “coulds” and “shoulds,” but Laura encouraged me to focus on the things I really wanted to do. Her approach to this – thinking of verbs rather than job titles – has created multiple a-ha moments for me.”

~M.M. CFO & Chief Compliance Officer

“Working with Laura as a coach was such a great investment in myself. I was honestly shocked at how much progress I felt like I had made after just one session with her. Laura’s thoughtful questions helped guide me through identifying my why and what I really want out of my career.  I would absolutely trust Laura to work with me again to get me to my next goal.”
