A born connector, people magnet, gifted presenter, and calm, methodical coach, Laurie is CEO and Workplace Strategist of Aligned at Work™ in Scottsdale, AZ. Having spent 35+ years developing people in corporate environments, Laurie discovered her own path becoming Aligned at Work™. She works in tandem with her husband Joseph to coach, train, and consult with leaders who want to engage their team members and create happy and high performing workplaces.
Laurie is the creator of the Aligned at Work™ Model, which combines the Success Factors of Vocation, Relationships, Finances, Wellbeing, and Spirit into an integrated work/life model. She identified these factors in the thousands of leaders and team members with whom she worked as a leadership and organization development expert in the field of banking and finance.
Laurie spent the last half of her 35+ year corporate career working for some of the nation’s largest investment and banking companies, and the first half working for some of the smallest. Laurie has an MS in Organizational Development and Leadership from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and a BS in Organizational Leadership from Eastern University in PA.
Laurie is proud of the work she does through Take the Lead Women, an organization and movement that promotes parity in leadership positions for women by 2025, not 2095 as the numbers point to now. She is a Certified Leadership Ambassador through Take the Lead, and provides keynotes and workshops on 9 Power Tools to Advance Your Career, based on the work of Gloria Feldt, Co-Founder. Laurie also coaches women leaders and provides professional facilitation of Women’s Workplace Wisdom Circles, designed to advance women at work.
She is a member of the National Association of Women Business Owners, the International Coach Federation, the National Speakers Association, and the Arizona Organization Development Network. She volunteers with Hope’s Crossing in Phoenix, a non-profit designed to help women who have been incarcerated, addicted, or headed down an unhealthy, unsafe track, to get their lives aligned.
