From HR Leader to Influential Author, Speaker, and Entrepreneur
Laurie’s journey began in 1995 as an HR assistant at Leaf Candy Company, where she tackled the challenges of a heavily unionized manufacturing environment staffed by immigrants from war-torn Bosnia. Her career took her to notable organizations like Monsanto, Alberto-Culver, Kemper Insurance, and Pfizer. Frustrated with outdated workplace practices, Laurie left corporate America to focus on speaking truth to power through writing, speaking, and advising.
CNN recognized Laurie as one of the top five career advisors in the United States, and her work has been featured in renowned publications such as NPR, The New Yorker, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and Vox. She is also the author of the critically acclaimed book, Betting On You: How to Put Yourself First and (Finally) Take Control of Your Career, published by Henry Holt & Company in January 2021.
