Hi, I’m Laura, Certified Life and Mindset Coach for women and passionate hiker and adventurer.
I’ve taken a lot of paths in life, from moving across the country (twice), to leaving my 15-year career as a hairstylist to become a life coach, to thru-hiking the 485-mile Colorado Trail.
I've also been stopped in my tracks by fear, discouraged by failure and crippled by anxiety. I've given up on myself as many times as I've taken the leap toward the life I want.
Like so many of you, I used to set goals hoping that achieving them would unlock happiness, worthiness and self-confidence.
When I thru-hiked the Colorado Trail in 2021, I found myself wondering why I was able to push myself to grow in some areas of my life, but held back by insecurity in other parts.
The key, I discovered, was in my mindset—not a lack of ability or courage, but simply the way I was thinking.
Developing an 'Adventure Mindset' toward myself and my goals allowed me to slow down, savor the journey, and stop tying my worth to achievements. Treating life like an adventure, not a to-do list, released me from procrastination, fear, and the need to prove myself.
So many of us want to live adventurous, fulfilling lives, and go after big goals, but are held back by lack of confidence, fear of failure and the belief that we're not worthy. We put so much pressure on ourselves and our dreams, and that pressure keeps us stuck and unsatisfied.
That's why Wild Woman Coaching exists.
It took changing the way I looked at myself and my goals, and cultivating an ADVENTURE MINDSET to learn what it takes to help other women work through the discomfort of growth and meet their highest potential.
Through mindset coaching, community building, and a little Trail Magic, I’m here to help you:
Achieve ANY goal you set for yourself, and actually enjoy the process
Feel adventurous, empowered and confident in every part of your life
Overcome indecision, low self-confidence, procrastination, and fear of failure
I want to see you succeed! I want to see you do wild, wonderful, and adventurous things. . . And I’m here to help arm you with the tools and mindset you need to achieve them.
If you’re tired of feeling like the only path to the life you want is filled with overwhelm, self criticism and frustration, I can help you. You are capable of so much more than you’re giving yourself credit for. I want to help you uncover the courage (trust me, it’s in there!) and skills you need to live a life of awe and fulfillment.
1:1 Mindset Coaching
Coaching sessions are tailored specifically to each individual, starting with an action plan that will help you break down your goals into manageable steps. Through coaching, I can help you break through limiting beliefs, gain clarity, and take steps towards a more positive mindset and greater self-confidence.
Learn to embrace any adventure you feel called to. From career changes to improving your relationships, moving to a new city or embarking on a journey to true self-acceptance--these are all adventures that sweep you our of your comfort zone.
As your life coach, I can help you to break through your limiting beliefs and build confidence so you can live a life of fulfillment and adventure. Through mindset coaching, I'll give you the tools and support you need to re-frame the way you think, set and reach goals, and live life on your terms.
Exploring beyond old patterns and into new possibilities is incredibly challenging, but my dedication to helping you grow is unwavering. With me as your cheerleader and motivator, no goal or dream has to be left unfulfilled.
Take a Walk on the Wild Side
The Wild Woman Community is about women supporting women. I’m here to empower women to learn from, grow from, and support one another through Trail Magic hikes and walks, workshops and Community Connection calls. My role is to support the connections—with one another and with nature—that are built along the way.
The Wild Woman Community is designed as your personal space to express your goals, desires, and obstacles in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. I’ll guide you through delving into the unexplored wilderness of your own mind.
Come as you are, take what you need, and get ready to make wild strides.
A little bit more about Me. . .
I’ve completed classes in outdoor recreation and leadership, including Wilderness Survival Skills, Leave No Trace, and Orienteering and Navigating.
I’m actually a total introvert! I’ve recently come to appreciate this as an asset rather than a “flaw”.
Despite being an introvert at heart, I love to listen, learn about other women, and engage in deep, thought-provoking conversations.
I achieved my goal of solo thru-hiking all 485 miles of the Colorado Trail in the summer of 2021.
The wilderness is my refuge. . . But my wonderful husband, Taylor, is a self-proclaimed “Indoorsman”. I’m constantly grateful for everything I have to learn from our differing perspectives on life.
I also have two big dogs, Booker (my rottie-mix) and Monster (the black lab). They both enjoy nature walks as long as they don’t extend beyond 3 miles.
I’m a Certified Life Coach through The Life Coach School.
I am a Certified Wilderness First Responder.
I left my career as a hairdresser of 15 years to pursue the adventure of mindset coaching full-time.
Nothing else fulfills me like being able to support other women in their endeavors and watch them grow and find fulfillment in this magical life.
