Coach Laura began her career as a professional actress.
After enjoying great success on the stage she pursued formal education in the field of wellness, uncovering a deep passion for coaching, personal training, and holistic health. She developed and taught classes for the Orlando Weight Management and Nutrition Center in Orlando, FL, focusing on behavioral change group coaching and nutrition education. She also dovetailed her own passion for fitness into practical application for other athletes, becoming a marathon coach for Team in Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the largest endurance sports training program in the world.
After a move to Massachusetts, she worked as personal trainer for Get In Shape For Women before transitioning into the field of worksite wellness. As a Wellness Program Manager and Health Coach for AdvancingWellness, she co-developed and managed the wellness program for Web Industries, a Massachusetts-based manufacturing company of 350 employees in seven locations throughout the US. Under the guidance of Coach Laura and AdvancingWellness, the program at Web put a stop to the rise in insurance expenses for their employees in a record breaking 5 years.
In 2016, Coach Laura and her two business partners, Chef Danielle DeSiato and Yogi Caitlin Green, opened Vivacious Life, offering retreats and programming for high powered women.
Laura maintains her own fitness through an avid connection to the November Project, and by continuing to run races across the US. To date, Laura has raised thousands of dollars for charity as a marathon runner, cross-country relay runner, and Ironman triathlete.
