Hi. I’m Laurie —
A certified health coach, functional nutritionist, yoga and movement educator — holding various certifications in the health & wellness space.
Using my various skills and blending the best of life and health coaching, I help women optimize their health and wellbeing with joy and ease.
For nearly 10 years I’ve guided the personal growth and transformation of hundreds of amazing clients who — like you — wanted to upgrade their health and happiness but struggled to go it alone.
And I’ve been there too.
For all of my adult life and adolescence I’ve had symptoms of hormone imbalance. I didn’t realize it or recognize the signs until my mid 30s when my life and health began to rapidly unravel.
At that time I was an endurance athlete and ran a successful fitness business as a health coach, running coach and personal trainer. I had hundreds of clients and heaps of education in optimizing health, fitness and wellness.
What I knew was consistently getting my clients to their goals. But when things got bad, none of it was helping me turn things around.
As my mid-thirties approached, my symptoms became debilitating. It was then I began to more vividly understand the hormone-health connection and its necessity for optimum wellbeing.
Everything we do impacts our hormones, at any age.
It can lead us closer to or further from feeling our best and from realizing our dreams.
Just as everything we do impacts our hormones, hormones affect everything we do. Hormones control our mood, energy, hunger, digestion, weight, libido, fertility, performance and the list goes on.
But when it comes to our hormone health, we’re minimally supported by our conventional education or healthcare systems.
In my darkest moments I was turned away by multiple medical professionals and told that there was nothing they could do for me — despite my debilitating symptoms and abnormal hormone levels. No referrals, no information, no suggestions, no options. Nada.
This frustrated me to no end and I knew I wasn’t alone.
I refused to accept this as my new way of living and being. If I could help it, I didn’t want to depend on caffeine, sugar or pharmaceuticals to power me through my days.
So I turned to books, I researched and began learning from experts in Functional Medicine & Nutrition. I tried just about anything I could find on balancing hormones naturally.
Eventually — and thankfully! — I got back to feeling like myself, which led me here.
There’s a serious education gap and a woeful lack of support when it comes to hormone health and women deserve better.
Better information, better support and better guidance. Because when it comes to our health, balanced hormones are key to feeling and doing our best.
Through my online and in-person coaching practice, I help fill the gap by supporting women who believe there’s a better way. Women who can’t find great support in the conventional model or who don’t see results with traditional health & fitness advice. Women who are interested in approaching and optimizing their health and hormones naturally.
I believe in a functional, whole-life approach to wellness.
Because everything we do — how we live, eat, breathe, think, work, interact, rest, move, play and spend our resources — it all impacts our hormonal health and wellbeing.
Everything we do is leading us closer to or further from feeling our best and realizing our dreams. But we can take the lead.
In my practice I help you be the CEO of your health.
We work to uncover the roots of your symptoms and discover what simple yet effective nutrition and lifestyle tweaks can help turn things around.
Along the way, you learn to heal yourself, take control of your hormones and return to an optimal state of vitality — learning priceless skills and tools to feel your best for years to come.
An educator at heart, I’ve been teaching, coaching & guiding since I can remember. I love it!
Starting off as a tutor to my school-aged peers, then a swimming and fitness instructor in my teens and early 20s, I eventually worked my way into a full-time business, coaching everyday runners and endurance athletes.
It all led me to a life of entrepreneurship where still today I find myself building and designing programs and services to help fill important gaps and grow needed communities.
Along the way, I’ve accumulated more than 1,500 hours of professional training in the health & wellness space. My focus lies in learning needed tools and skills to help us better balance our bodies, our hormones, our work, our communities and our lives. With much love, I bring this learning to you.
