Leadership and Resilience coach
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. – Marianne Williamson
Laural is the Integrative Wellness Coordinator / Leadership and Resilience Coach. She is responsible for client integration strategy and experience. Laural will embrace your journey in an empathetic and compassionate way. Laural’s superpower is helping clients gain awareness in their wellness journey and to transform that awareness into the empowerment and goals that they need to succeed.
Laural is a Professionally Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation and embodies her coaching skills in every interaction with clients. She holds a firm belief that her clients truly do hold the answers to any block they are trying to resolve, and it is her job to help them uncover what might have been hidden long ago. There are 3 fundamental pillars Laural uses when working with clients: awareness, empowerment, and authenticity. To foster awareness, Laural works with many tools and assessments, such as the Energy Leadership Index Assessment and HeartMath Stress and Wellbeing assessment. Laural is passionate about working one on one with clients, working in groups, and bringing wellness and resilience to the workplace. Often clients describe working with Laural as a way to “take their power back.”
Laural’s professional background has taken her on a journey; working in many industries both for profit and not-for-profit. She has held various executive positions that have taught her the philosophy she believes in strongly: “People are human beings before they are employees.” Laural also holds her Master’s in Business Administration from Alvernia University.
Laural considers herself to be well rounded in her own journey, although this was not always the case. Her personal story has shed light on the very need for a wonderful integration program such as the one offered at Ampersand. Laural has discovered how important it is to focus on all areas of well-being, to have a team of practitioners who understand multiple parts of self and who are able to shine the light where it feels dark. Laural’s story is personally impacted by trauma, system de-regulation and chaos. She has been on a full-bodied wellness journey for optimal health and is passionate about bringing her toolbox to the table.
Laural’s newest growth has been in motherhood. She and her husband welcomed their first baby in April of 2020. This opportunity for growth has elevated her learning, demanded her resiliency, and blew her heart wide open. Most recently, Laural has been passionate about working with her clients on breaking generational patterns and her short journey in motherhood has allowed her to see how much this really is possible. Laural loves her family, simplicity, experiences over things, purging all that is extra in life (her husband keeps joking he keeps making the cut), and investing in her deepest and dearest lifelong friends.
