“Serving the American people in one of our Nation’s most demanding environments requires a deep and abiding patriotism. I am grateful for your commitment through long hours and personal sacrifice, and I appreciate your devotion to building a better, brighter future for all Americans.”

"Having Laurie as a career coach was life changing. After reviewing the strengths assessment we dove right into real world examples and ways for me to improve. Laurie would point out aspects and then I would realize the lesson as if a light bulb turned on and challenged me. I really appreciated her guided discussions to really make me work on developing my growth. Many things I had tried to work on previously made more sense and I felt I could finally put different pieces together to see the entire picture. The tools I had are now sharper and more adept, and I am grateful for the guidance and coaching from Laurie."

Julia Prochnik, President, JASenergies, Founder & Principle, San Francisco, CA

"Ms. Laurie A. Watkins was a dynamic, guest lecturer in my FSU College of Business course, Workforce Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities. Laurie delivered a high-impact and thoughtful message to the students based on her experience as a state and national political strategist. From her book “Go from Stressed to Strong”, she used her expertise and personal story to teach my students the importance of work-life balance, relationships, and teamwork. She reminded my HR/management students the importance of taking care of oneself, co-workers, and being unafraid to speak up. In today’s world, Laurie understands the need for authentic and meaningful relationships in the workplace."

JR Harding Ed.D, Florida State University, College of Business, Department of Management

"I loved participating in Laurie's program! I knew I needed a change in my diet, and life in general so I signed up. This program was an excellent re-set for me. But more than that was the research, support, and knowledge that Laurie brings to her program. Changing mindsets is so important and Laurie doesn’t miss an opportunity to help you change yours. Scheduled one-on-one coaching calls make her very accessible to you. You can ask her anything and she will in turn, ask you questions to really get you thinking! It took me years to create bad habits and I knew it would take me more than 6 weeks to create new ones. Laurie’s program jump-started my health and wellness journey and gave me the tools to move forward with good habits, less stress, and better sleep. You can’t afford not to invest in yourself with Laurie as your coach."

Lisa Jarvis, Owner, Three Lilies Photography, Grass Valley, CA

"Laurie is a highly motivated and qualified professional with experience in all aspects of industry, government, and academia. I believe she is an outstanding professional who brings to bear a special set of skills which is very difficult to find in one individual, or even within one organization. She has insights and gifts that surpass her years, a competitive nature and determination that cannot be beat."

The Honorable Thomas R. Lamont, Assistant Secretary of the Army, Manpower & Reserve Affairs (Ret.)

"One of the keys to Laurie's program is that it helps you manage stress. She would prompt me with questions. What triggers you to feel stress? How do you handle your stress? This was an eye opener for me. Laurie's program helped me to stay focused, to find new ways of eating, and provided tools to help change my mindset. I learned a lot about myself and was able to identify my strengths, weaknesses, and stress triggers. I'm not only healthier, I'm motivated to continue on this path. Laurie helped motivate and encourage me throughout the whole process and she continues to do so today. I truly could not have done it without her. If you're looking for a program that will help you become more healthy, this is it. If you fall, Laurie will encourage you to get back up and continue. I'm glad to say I not only gained a great coach, but I gained a long time friend!"

Alicia McLaughlin, Auburn, CA

"I have known Laurie for over fifteen years and through her extensive work in both state and national politics, as well as her outstanding contributions to the space industry and I highly recommend Laurie for her skills and expertise."
