Living the Dream Coaches – Credentials


Associate Certified Coach (ACC)

Joe and Laurie are credentialed as Associate Certified Coaches with the International Coach Federation. This global organization sets curriculum standards (accreditation), core competencies and a code of ethics for the coaching profession.

Certified Professional Coach (CPC)

Both Laurie and Joe have completed the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) certification program and are Certified Professional Coaches. iPEC’s training program is an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) approved by the International Coach Federation, the coaching world’s certifying body.

Energy Leadership Index-Master Practioner (ELI – MP)

Joe and Laurie are Master Practitioners for iPEC’s Energy Leadership Index assessment, which we call the R Factor. The R Factor assessment measures levels of energy based on attitude, or perception and perspective of the world. Because attitude is subjective, it can be altered. By working with a coach using the ELI, you can alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness, and increase your energy and leadership effectiveness.


Laurie has been an internal consultant for more than 20 years, understanding the needs of management teams and employees in areas of leadership, team, professional, and personal development. She assesses the needs of Living The Dream clients to determine the approach for each person’s unique situation. With Laurie’s background in the corporate arena and Joe’s many years in healthcare, they bring a plethora of work and life experiences to each client that engages them. They work together for the best and highest need of the client.

Training & Facilitating

Joe put his training expertise to work many times in his career in nuclear medicine, training others in radiation safety and nuclear cardiology. In his role as an industry-group leader, he was a sought-after conference speaker and worked with many medical doctors and professionals at one of the nation’s leading university hospitals.

Laurie learned the art and science of training and facilitation as she progressed from a one-on-one job trainer early in her career, to a learning and development leader and facilitator, providing leadership development training for the nation’s largest mutual fund company. She is an expert in team and group dynamics, learning teams, leadership, and organizational development.

Together, Joe and Laurie partner to move their clients forward on their path. They use their training and facilitation skills and Laurie uses her design skills in VIP sessions and in workshops.
