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. 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. 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. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and three kids.
