Hi, I'm Lauren!
I’m so happy you’re here!
Let’s get to know each other …
I’m a serial expat and avid traveler on an ongoing mission to fall madly,
deeply, and unconditionally in love with my life.
And hopefully, inspire you to do the same.
Do you find yourself breezing through life on autopilot? Simply going through the motions, consumed by the hustle and bustle of the daily grind?
Do you feel like you’re living out someone else’s path, stuck fitting yourself to a mold that others created for you?
Do you feel way off track? Like you’ve been startled awake and don’t know how you got here?
On paper, and probably on Instagram, it all seems so great. But in real life, without the filter, it feels all wrong…
Does any of this feel familiar to you?
If so, we’re not all that different. I know these feelings all too well.
Because this was me.
So, in 2013 I packed up my bags and hopped on a plane halfway around the world with hopes to rewrite my story.
After graduation, I made the craziest decision of my life. I abandoned my “dream opportunity” at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York, and instead, booked a one-way ticket to Spain.
I was terrified. I had no idea what I was doing, or what I was looking for. All I knew was something had to change.
Living and traveling abroad, outside of my circumstances and far from all those I knew and loved, I had no one to rely on but myself.
At first it wasn’t easy. I felt alone, misunderstood and isolated. I realized I’d never had to truly sit with myself and my feelings before. It took me some time to see the incredible opportunity right in front of me.
I had given myself a clean slate, a reset button. Outside of everyone else’s rules, expectations and standards, I was free to break the mold.
I could finally become the person I was meant to be.
I was ready to create a life I felt good about.
The life that I actually wanted.
After years searching near and far for my “purpose,” I eventually found the answers I was looking for, inside of myself.
YOU are the answer you are looking for.
Throughout my journey, the most important thing I’ve learned is to trust myself, follow what feels good, and lead with my intuition.
I truly believe that each person is the expert of their own life, and that you know what’s best for you.
You, my friend, are powerful. You are strong. You are full of potential. You are capable of living a full, vibrant and purposeful life.
It all starts with looking inside yourself.
Ready to live life on your own terms?
I’m committed to sharing the best of what I’m learning and living with you.
I believe that you deserve to feel good, to laugh out loud, to love yourself and pursue your purpose.
And I’ve got tips, tools and strategies to get you there.
“You gave me so much motivation and inspiration to follow my dreams and believe in myself. If it wasn’t for you, I probably would not have had the confidence to try for the road less taken. I really couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and thank you for giving me the little push I needed.”
– Amanda Morris
“By leaving your comfort zone behind and taking a leap of faith into something new, you find out who you are truly capable of becoming.”

My Coaching Method
What is coaching?
As your coach, I’m here to help you navigate through a powerful journey of self-discovery. You can think of me as a supportive guide and unbiased brainstorming buddy who empowers you to discover, clarify and achieve your heart-centered goals.
I’m also here to provide ongoing accountability throughout your journey. I’ll remind you of your purpose and bigger picture to keep you on track and moving forward.
How does my coaching method work?
My ultimate goal through coaching is to empower you with the confidence to trust yourself and look within to find solutions. We’ll first work on clarifying your true purpose, and then identify any roadblocks keeping you from the life you desire to create. We will then design an actionable plan and figure out your next steps to get you there.
Our Coaching Partnership
As your coach, it’s not my role to give my personal opinions, provide all the answers, lead the conversation, or tell you what to do. My job is to ask thought-provoking, powerful questions to help you dig deep and uncover answers and solutions inside yourself.
At its core, coaching is a collaborative relationship. That means that I see you as the expert of your own life, and as an equal partner in our journey together.
What I am here to do is provide space for you to think and be more intentional about your goals and actions. I’m also here to offer support, accountability and fresh perspectives. I’ll challenge your limiting beliefs and negative thought patterns and help you see where you’re thinking is stuck or holding you back.
