Hi, I'm Laura Elizabeth.

Mom. Indie Author. Life Ambassador.

Welcome to IPride. 

In 2015, as a result of my own childhood trauma, I created IPride, a self-esteem, empowerment program primarily for youth.


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 life experiences to help them discover their power within and explore endless possibilities.  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.
