Hi! I'm Laura,

Mom. Life Coach. Author. Survivor. 

Welcome to IPride. 

In 2015, as a result of my own childhood trauma, I created IPride, a self-esteem, empowerment program for youth. While it is true that we are all "perfectly imperfect", my goal has always been to follow my passion to work directly with young people to help lift their spirits and provide them with tools to improve their self-esteem and truly enjoy living in their now.  

Whether in a classroom of middle school students or hiking with an adult looking for ways to break through during a life transition, I call on my strong faith in God, my professional training, and diverse experience to help open their minds to new opportunities.  Ultimately working with them to become personally invested and responsible for their future and achieve optimal potential.  

Remember, Breathe. Hope. Be. And when you're ready...

Let's talk more.  I'd love to hear from you.
