“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.
On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” — Arundhati Roy
Hello, I'm Laurie
As the founder of Chutzpah Consulting, I specialize in helping organizations develop culture 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 lived experience with a mental illness called bipolar disorder. They include: how we can include marginalized, racialized and under-represented people and communities more, inclusive economic development, youth, community development and social movement learning.
