Leading with a servants heart…
Laurie began her working career within the Insurance Property and Casualty Industry as a sales producer and after 10 years, transitioned into the health and wellness industry. Laurie worked her way up from an independent sales rep, to managing teams of over 70 employees. In 2003, Laurie took the leap of faith and opened a successful dayspa. In 2007, a tremendous opportunity was presented, which included relocation from NJ to TN. Gaylord Opryland recruited Laurie to bring her family to TN to come manage their multi-million dollar spa/salon, fitness center and indoor/outdoor pools. Laurie believed that TN would bring a better quality of life for her family. She sold her day spa and moved to Franklin, TN. Laurie often jokes that was she was a “Southern Girl” at heart but just didn’t know it.
In 2011, personal life changes required Laurie to find a new career path that would eliminate working on nights & weekends so she would be close to home, maintain a controlled work schedule and provide a secure homelife as a single working Mom. She joined Regus Management, and through their business support model, acquired the training and insight needed to recognize the great need many businesses have for executive administrative tasks, special services, and sales & marketing. Virtual Assistance highlighted Laurie’s passion and strengths to help businesses become [more] successful. Laurie freelanced for over 4 years and in 2014 launched The Inside Story, LLC. Her expertise in the field and her passion for serving others marries perfectly to create a unique VA business model.
Laurie spends her free time at the baseball fields of TN with her two sons that play travel baseball all year. She enjoys reading, exercising, and attending social and business networking opportunities.
My reason everyday to push forward. To grow a business that started from using my skills to take hold of our future, to break the chains and the limitations that single parents have to overcome. Because of the struggles, The Inside Story, LLC was born. Bigger and more purposeful, than I could have ever imagined. And were not done yet!
