Hello, I'm Laurie

As the founder of Chutzpah Consulting, I specialize in helping organizations develop strategies, cultures and systems to be inclusive, innovative and impactful.  

I do this by designing engaging, creative and transformative learning experiences where people feel cared for, trusted, highly motivated and able to bring their best self to work.

I'm also doing a PhD through the Nova Scotia Inter-University Educational Studies Doctoral program which includes Mount Saint Vincent University, St. Francis Xavier University and Acadia University. 


My research interests are informed by my own lived experience with mental illness.  They include: inclusive economic development, community development in general, social movement learning and meditative inquiry as an approach to learning in community.
