Who is Laura?
Yes, that is me in the skydiving picture! In 2013 I decided to practice what I preach and step outside my comfort zone. I had always had a fear of heights and at one point, the idea of jumping out of an airplane was unimaginable. I truly believed I couldn’t do it. In my work as a coach, I encourage people to look at something called limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are thoughts that hold us back from showing up, being seen and living brave. The idea that I was incapable of skydiving was a limiting belief for me. One day, I made the choice to challenge this belief. I worked with my own life coach to overcome my phobia and I’m happy to report that on July 6th, 2013 I did something I once thought I could never do… I went skydiving! It was amazing 🙂
Another thing I want you to know about me is that I love my life! I felt drawn to coaching because I want to help you create a life that you love. My friends and family have always come to me for advice and guidance. I believe that this is what I am meant to do.
I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I value family, connecting to others, health, personal growth, and joy. My hobbies include physical fitness, nutrition (I follow Whole30 as a way of life), scrapbooking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
I have a degree in Physical Therapy but at this point I’m focusing my time and energy on life coaching. My husband is a dentist. Together we own a successful dental practice. We have 2 girls who are growing up to become well-adjusted young women who know what they want out of life.
My life coach training includes the following:
- 2009 – I received a certification in professional coaching from The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) – check out their website at www.ipeccoaching.com and you will see that I have been well trained as a coach.
- 2013 – I became an Abundance Intelligence Certified Leader through the Abundance Intelligence Institute. www.abundanceintelligence.com
