"Laura thinks broadly. Her efforts coaching are considerate and challenging. I find myself thinking in contexts that I have not considered much previously - this the result of Laura's coaching. Doing so is greatly to my benefit, expanding the possibilities that apply to the situations we discuss.
Laura doesn't impose her opinions. Rather, she seeks to provoke thought be drawing out ideas and prospects latent within and outside of one's normal thinking processes."
- Robb Scheifer
Owner & Principal RALSCH Corporation
"Laura was my executive coach during the first 3 months of my new role as CEO. It was one of the smartest decisions that I made early on in this new position. Laura is a seasoned executive coach and her approach is what I appreciated the most. Laura's holistic approach helped to keep me focused on top priorities during the transition into my new role. Laura is very knowledgeable and she utilized several resources and techniques that were extremely helpful. I highly recommend Laura as an executive coach whether you are a CEO, senior level executive or any leader wanting to advance in your career."

"As a business owner and content creator, working with Laura as my executive coach throughout 2019 was the catalyst in transforming the way I work and the quality of my projects. From assessing my big picture goals to creating the individual steps needed to achieve them, Laura helped me transition from feeling burned out to reclaiming the passion for my business and truly growing it."
- Lauren Ward
Entrepreneur & Writer
"I have had the honor and privilege of working very closely with Laura as a healthcare professional for greater than a decade, in a very structured healthcare organization, military medicine. With the rapidly changing environment and goal of becoming a high-reliability organization, the many demands placed on providers can lead to devastating professional dissatisfaction. Committed to positively changing the current culture of healthcare, Laura embodies the core of her values to positively impact outcomes through presence and compassionate communication with each human being she touches. Laura is an inspirational, dynamic. and committed educator in the area of mindfulness, resiliency and burnout, coaching and inspiring each of her students to individually promote self-discovery and build healthy relationships. I had the opportunity to attend her six week Mindfulness training course and this work and practice has changed my life! I have enhanced my everyday interactions as a healthcare provider. Laura has taught me incredibly valuable lessons in self-care and resiliency to prevent my personal burnout in this fast paced, distracted society. As a trainer/facilitator in Relationship-Centered Communication in Healthcare work, Laura has been charismatic as she has guided hundreds of healthcare providers through challenging scenarios, teaching them skills to enhance patient and provider satisfaction."

"I’ve experienced mindfulness for transformational leadership and peak performance training with Laura in one-on-one coaching and group sessions. Her consistent care and compassion combined with diverse knowledge and expertise in the fields of mindfulness, nursing, and naval leadership give her a distinctive repertoire to draw from in creating connection with others. Her approaches are scientifically based and can be customized to meet her clients where they are in their lives. Mindfulness training with Laura has helped me to focus for longer periods of time, create greater mind-body awareness, recognize and reduce stress, while enhancing creativity, productivity, health and overall happiness. I am committed to this practice for the many benefits and am grateful to Laura for her skillful guidance and care. "

Chief Evolution Officer & Professor
"As a result of Laura's training, I feel as if I've made significant improvements toward my goals. I feel more a part of my life by noticing life in moments, and life seems more meaningful in this way. I feel more connected to my experiences in daily life and I try to enjoy even the "dull" or "normal" moments of the present rather than fixating on the next "exciting" thing. It's easier to recognize when I'm beginning to get angry or irritated and catch it before I get too deep in the physiological experience of anger or irritation. Therefore, I don't tend to dwell on it as long. I get to decide how I want to respond rather than being hijacked by it.
Now, I can connect with family members, co-workers, and even strangers in a more meaningful way.
I find more joy when spending time with loved ones and I feel like they enjoy me more now, too. I improved my interactions with others at work in a more skillful way which has positive effects even under difficult circumstances.Even if I don't handle the situation perfectly, I'm aware of it and able to make amends"
