Passionate about personal development, Laurie has been coaching individuals and groups for over 15 years. She holds a degree in Education and Political Science from Swarthmore College, and was certified to teach elementary school. Before enthusiastically joining the Handel Group, Laurie owned and operated Partners with Parents, a tutoring and educational consulting business in New York City.
In eight years, Laurie has built Handel Group® Life Coaching from “nearly non-existent” to a team of skilled coaches. She considers herself “an angel recruiter” because she is busy looking for other people who share her mission to instill more joy and peace in the world. “When all people are living true to their ideals, then I can rest,” she says. She doesn’t anticipate being able to rest anytime soon.
Her professional and personal mission is to better the world by teaching people to tell the truth and pursue their dreams. Her focus is on maximizing clients’ ability to thrive across all areas of life–health, love, career, money, family, etc. Laurie spreads her message of empowerment through live international events, one-on-one coaching, virtual coaching courses, as a writer, on radio and in TV appearances such as MTV’s True Life Special: I’m Getting a Second Chance, A&E’s The Marriage Test, the Dr. Phil Show and TODAY show.
Laurie feels blessed to spend her days (and most nights) doing work that makes her proud and she is inspired by Handel clients for having the guts to look at themselves honestly.
She lives in Manhattan with her husband and three kids.
