After earning her bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Memphis, Laurie earned her Masters in Education while employed as an underwriter at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee in Chattanooga. She spent the next six years teaching mathematics and coaching cross-country at GPS in Chattanooga and Providence Day School in Charlotte, North Carolina, which further ignited her passions of teaching, counseling, encouraging others, communicating with compassion, efficacy, and diplomacy, and fostering a spirit of collaboration.
Following the birth of her first child, Laurie began an independent tutoring business, and, after their second child was born, began practicing yoga. She soon realized that yoga was something she needed to share, and in 2011, she earned the RYT-200 yoga certification. In 2014, Laurie and her family moved to the Nashville area, where she continued teaching yoga and tutoring math to individual clients. She was employed for two years with the Williamson County School system, teaching math part-time, before joining the BluePrint Strategy team and working with Cable. Laurie believes that each day should be filled with meaningful occupation, work and play that bring her joy and employ her gifts and strengths. Her passion is in empowering others to do the same, and she is thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of the mission of Cable.
