Before 2017 ATLA, I had an acting studio in North Hollywood and brought the LA teachers in to teach the youth and teens. 

Since 2017, I have ventured into getting my Professional Coaching and Behavioral Coaching Certifications so I may prepare parents and actors of what the life of an actor entails and how a young actor can flourish in this industry called SHOW BUSINESS.

My Professional Certifications:

** Certified Professional Coach/Speaker with John Maxwell &



** DISC Certified Behavior Trainer with John Maxwell & Team


** Certified Behavioral Consultant with PeopleKeys/Institute for

    Motivational Living Inc.


‚Äč** Certified Professional Coach with Fowler Wainwright



** Member of the International Association of Coaching

Laurie's background as an acting mom

and also as an owner of an acting talent

training service in Hollywood.

When My daughter, Tabitha Morella, wanted to become an aspiring actor at the young age of 15.  She and I took a trip to Los Angeles for a week of investigating in March of 2008; which ended up being a full time stay and turning into a full life adventure for 9+ years.

Due to Tabitha's auditions, and needing to keep my travel schedule flexible to be able to visit my husband and older son on the East Coast, I had to work a job that would enable me to be flexible enough to take her to her auditions anytime and any day; and to be able to run my business anywhere and anyplace, and that is when I started to learn about the business of SHOW BUSINESS! 

Our LA adventure led me to opening my worldly renowned LA Acting School called Actor Training In LA The school was a talent training service where youth and teens would come to train from all over the US and Internationally.

Before I opened my LA Acting School, I took a certified professional coaching class to become a professional life coach; so I would better understand people and to be able to help my parents and my young actors when they walked into my studio.

My coaching training at that time was with the highly renowned Fowler Wainwright International.  

Being a Certified Professional Coach was very significant in helping all those that came through my studio doors; and not just my clients, but my teachers, agents and managers as well.

Some major changes happened in 2017; my daughter, (who by the way did very well in her acting career) click here to check out her IMDB decided to go into Ministry School, so I closed my studio in LA so I could be with my wonderful Husband full time.

Now I am teaching and helping parents across the US and Internationally, who have acting kids, or have kids who want to get into acting, learn what acting is all about.
