Laura continuously broke glass ceilings by being the first female general manager, multi-unit leader, and partner of a leading restaurant company once considered the Nordstrom of casual dinning. Her ability to create effective training and operations systems made her a key player in growing the company from six Southern California based restaurants to 145, nationwide. Laura has always been considered a developer of people and knows first-hand that the easiest road to growing long-term sales and profit is through cultivating a happy, aligned, and invested team.
That was a fine life, even extraordinary, until two events changed the course of her life forever: her recovery from alcoholism, and later, her master's degree in Spiritual Psychology. There, she found a whole new way of being in the world…an inside-out approach. Instead of being rocked by outer circumstances, she learned skills of self-mastery and began to live life with ease and grace rather than fear and struggle. Basically, she learned “the stuff no one taught us in school."
Laura spent a small fortune on her education but believes that people of all economic levels need access to this life-changing information if they want it. As a result, she went on to found Laura Dewey Coaching, LLC and is now a passionate coach, speaker, course designer, and workshop facilitator.
Her first book, Shine Your Light…Illuminate Your Love, chronicles her rocky road to from addiction and insecurity to strength, self-acceptance and eventually to finding the love of her life; find it on Amazon.
