LaurieAnn travelled and lived in many places. Born in Montreal, Quebec, LaurieAnn's family moved to Istanbul, Turkey when she was seven where they lived for four years, during which time they were the first Civilian Family to "walk" from Asia to Europe on the first Bosphorus Bridge. LaurieAnn always wanted to have her own business, from the age of 7. She transitioned from Marketing/Branding/Finance to the automotive industry at 40 after her divorce. She owned her own auto repair/used car sales/towing company in a small town for 3 years. After losing everything, she lived in a barn for 3 years with no running water. "It was refreshing and very much a time of self-reflection", she says. Prior to living in the barn, LaurieAnn had struggled for 30 years with bulimia. She promised herself when she recovered that she would pay my knowledge forward to help others. This is what she is doing now. In the interim, She also followed her other passion of handwriting analysis and is the first Canadian and third (of 4) in North America to become a Masters Certified Handwriting Analyst. LaurieAnn has authored three books, contributed to a #1 Best Seller, and received the publishers award for Make Up Not Required - How to Brand The True You. Her latest book is How To Have Your Cake & Not Eat It All Too - A Guide To Adult Bulimia Recovery. She is the host of the Bleep Bulimia Podcast targeting women in midlife still struggling with bulimia and co-host of LIFT Your Story Podcast with Roy Miller. She is happily divorce and single with three children, two dogs, three cats and a fish, living in Milton, Ontario, Canada.
