A Note from Laurie

Career Alchemy AcademyFeeling stuck in a career that drains you? You’re not alone.  I am Laurie Swanson, a certified career and life coach, TEDx speaker, Cornell-certified DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging) expert, AAUW-trained negotiator, and spirit junkie.

Let’s face it, the world doesn’t always support our big work dreams, especially for women. Here are the facts: studies show women are leaving STEM fields at crazy rates, and overall happiness is WAY down.

But there’s good news too! I created Career Alchemy Academy to help you design the work-life you have dreamed about. Forget the title changes, it’s about being the authentic YOU at work (less mask, more flow!), doing work that energizes you, and making a real difference.

Ready to ditch the hustle and find your work-life magic? Join the Academy and you’ll:

  • Become unapologetically you: Smash limiting beliefs and outdated patterns holding you back.
  • Find your career soulmate: Do work that makes you feel ALIVE, not drained.
  • Build your dream team: Learn alongside amazing women and support each other’s success.
  • Craft a plan that works: We’ll turn your dreams into a step-by-step reality.
  • Finally, prioritize your happiness: Gain the confidence to go after what truly matters.

You are an alchemist! Let’s design your dream work-life together.
