Hi! I’m Laura McCaffrey.
I am a mechanical engineer working in the field of engineering for over 18 years. I have been coaching women and men for over six years, both in corporate and private settings.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tufts University, a Masters Degree in Energy Management from NYIT, and I am currently a PhD Candidate at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology studying Organizational Leadership. My research revolves around how women lead in male-dominated fields.
In addition to my academic training, I am also a BARE certified life coach.
To supplement the knowing of the mind, I also have been certified in modalities that deal with the knowing of the body and intuition. I am a certified Reiki Master, and I have taken training in Shamanic Journey, Energy Body Clearing, Shadow Work, Soul Tarot, and Ancestral Healing.
At home, I enjoy spending time with my two small children, my husband, and our two dogs. When I’m not working, coaching, or dissertating, you can find me on my spin bike or with my nose in a book.
How I Work:
As a coach, I aim to be a co-creatrix with you in building a life that feels damn good to live. Together we’ll work to acknowledge the systemic issues that hold women back, and create strategies to change the system as we work in them without burning out. You can lead, in all areas of your life, with authenticity and without compromising who you really are.
I know for sure that women belong in leadership positions in all organizations.
I trust women with power and resources. (h/t Kelly Diels)
Also, I curse a lot.
Our teachers, coaches, and mentors inform so much of who we are. So my About page wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging the people who have taught me and who’s work mine is based on.
