Hello world!


Hello and welcome to my website and blog! This is my very first post on my brand new website. While there are a zillion things I could write about, the topics which are front-and-center for me right now are APPRECIATION and GRATITUDE.

Many thanks to many friends, colleagues, clients and mentors who have supported me directly and indirectly in launching my independent practice (in the fall of 2009) and this website (in the fall of 2010). With respect to launching this website, I especially want to thank:

  • Cezanne Allen – for introducing me to WordPress web publishing
  • Heidi Stahl – for writing coaching support and exercises
  • Laura DeHaven – for guiding me through a process that unlocked my stuckness and enabled the words to flow
  • Michele Goedde, Alison Withey, and Connie Curlett – for their inspiring WordPress websites and referral to their website creator
  • Terri Rylander, for helping design, develop and launch this website
  • Mary Grace Long, for producing “beautifully real” photographs
  • Clients, Colleagues, and Teachers – for enabling me to do this work and for sharing testimonials and referrals

This entire process was an exercise in collaboration and elegantly reflects my tagline in action … Explore. Co-create. Transform!

Please share any feedback, ideas, any questions about my site and what I do, and any suggestions for my website or tips about how I communicate my work. I am always open feedback and have a lot to learn. 🙂

    Congratulations, Laurie! The website looks great and the subject is very interesting. I’m wishing you the best of luck.

      Thanks Katie! You’re my first comment! I am new to blogging so this is exciting. 🙂 If there is something specific that struck you, I would love to know what that is. Thanks for your kind words. — Laurie

    Very impressive, Laurie! All that work in I-group obviously paid off ;o ).

  3. Hi Laurie,

    Congrats on your latest step! I just joined the OD LinkedIn group and saw your profile. You have a good-looking site and I look forward to seeing your blog develop. Feel free to take a look and comment at my site as well.

    I’m new to putting myself out there in OD as a defined specialty so would love to connect with others who are doing so, especially face to face as is likely possible in our case. I will offer your favorite beverage as an inducement! Let me know if interested.

    • Moira, how kind of you to see me on LinkedIn, find my website, share feedback and introduce yourself! What a welcome way to begin my day. 🙂 My site and blog are in process and your comment and some other notes I have received lately remind me that it’s time to get my blog going. I have been more active on Facebook lately. Feel free to connect with me on Facebook and LinkedIn if you like.

      Congratulations on moving into the OD field! Kudos for your initiative in reaching out and your invitation to connect personally. I would be delighted to meet you. Let’s follow up offline. You can reach me at: — Laurie

    Laurie, this new website is fabulous. I love the look, your welcoming approach, and the subject matter – so vital to all of us. Thank you for contributing to our world! Best regards, Patti

    • Patti, you are too kind. Thank you. I launched this site last November and am working on phase two right now. So much learning in all of this. I like to remember that this whole process, like me, is a work in progress! My new site will launch in the next month. Stay tuned and thanks so much for visiting. xoxo
