I am Laurie Sessa, a coach, salesperson, blogger, budding writer, and an awesome “Auntie” to my nieces, nephews, and friends’ kids. I am step-mom to twin 24-year-old step-daughters, Chelsea and Kaitlyn, and Eric, a very special 19-year-old young man who lives with me and his Dad full time. Eric was born with Williams Syndrome, and is full of love and light. I share a lot about our lives in order to share Eric’s light with the rest of the world.
I am passionate about helping emerging leaders fulfill their potential as early in their careers as possible. The best advice I ever received was to surround myself with people who want to see me succeed. Now, I want to be that person for the world around me – I want to help others achieve their goals and to realize their dreams.
I am a graduate of Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Certificate Program with an undergraduate degree in Government/Public Policy from the University of Notre Dame, and a Master’s Degree in Arts and Teaching from Trinity Washington University.
I started my career in education as a teacher, and then transitioned into a business career in sales and marketing. I have extensive business experience in marketing, sales and sales management in the software industry, and currently work at Blackbaud, Inc. in the beautiful Charleston, SC.
