Laura graduated from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, where she completed her Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in Employment Relations. Always having a keen interest in studying organizations and people, her academic pursuits later led her to Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, United Kingdom where she earned a Master of Science in Business Psychology and Coaching Psychology. This globally recognized program holds accreditation from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and equipped Laura with formal training and practicum experience in coaching. After completing her Masters in Coaching Psychology, Laura continued her coaching training through Gold Mind Academy in the UK to become a globally accredited ADHD-Specialist Coach.
