You've come to the right place!
Grab my FREE video series, The Four Pillars of Breast Cancer Recovery.
Take the first steps to building a life that's better than before breast cancer.
I'm so glad you're taking a step to support your health and relieve your suffering and struggles.
Recovering from and living with breast cancer can wear you down emotionally and physically.
It's scary to wonder about the safety of everything you eat or put on your skin.
It's hard to deal with the fear of a cancer recurrence...or to hear you have a recurrence.
Sometimes it's just hard to move past feeling pissed off that you got cancer in the first place.
I hear you, and I understand because I've been there too.
My name is Laura, and while I was going through chemotherapy and surgeries to treat stage 2B breast cancer, every day I thought about the end goal...the day I would finish and get back to “normal” and start living my healthy, active life again.
But that wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. I had to overcome A LOT of physical and mental struggles and I had to learn to stop being my own worst enemy.
It took me a long time to realize...if I wanted to feel better, I HAD to change the story I was telling myself about what it meant to recover from breast cancer treatment.
I'm so grateful that I did that work.
Because when the day came that I was diagnosed with a recurrence, I was able to deal with it in a very different way and continue to live a life of joy, goals, connection and fulfillment.
I want to help you do the same.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011, I was so scared. I thought breast cancer treatment would be the hardest thing I'd ever have to do, and don't get me wrong...it was brutal.
But, when my treatment ended and I was released from my doctor's care. A whole new phase of treatment, that no one had told me about began…recovery.
That phase included hot flashes, lymphedema, joint pain, weight gain, brain fog and horrible fatigue.
I felt distant from the people closest to me because they didn't understand what I was going through, and I didn’t want to be a “victim”, but they expected me to be "normal" again, and I wasn't.
I also felt like a failure. I really struggled with how to come to terms with this completely different body that just was not behaving the way I was used to, or the way that I wanted it to.
I got sick of asking doctors for help with the weight I had gained, or the crappy way I felt, because rather than finding the support I was looking for, I felt dismissed and like they didn't even hear what I was saying.
It was extremely frustrating, but I was determined to fight this fight until the bitter end.
Then one day I realized that I was actually manifesting that bitterness.
I didn’t like the me that wasn’t me anymore. I was angry at the medical system, and I was angry at everyone who kept telling me to take it easy on myself because I had been through cancer.
That was definitely not the road I wanted to be going down.
So, I made a decision to rewrite my "after cancer" story. I decided to change the way I approached my healing and to change the way I talked to, and treated myself.
It took me a long, (painful) time to figure out some important things:
-I had to stop trying to go "back to normal"...not easy to accept.
-I had to show up differently. Meaning I had to change my mindset and start acting like the person I wanted to be, and not the one I used to be.
-I had to be intentional about the energy I was infusing my days with, and the direction I was taking my life in.
As a cancer survivor, you know first-hand how delicate life is. I know that because we understand each other in a special way that only survivors can.
We have a shared experience that connects us, and you've FINALLY found someone who gets it!
I've met so many women who would break down in tears of frustration trying to overcome the same things I did.
Women who felt victimized, or as if they were a disappointment to their family because they couldn’t figure out why they felt so different now.
Those experiences ignited a passion in me. A passion to create something that would support survivors like you through all the challenges that I had to figure out and overcome when breast cancer treatment ended.
I had to bring awareness to this space of Breast Cancer Recovery in a way that was more than just talking about medicine and surgery.
In a way that supported and empowered survivors to live their best, healthiest lives. To lay down their warrior shields and pick up the gentle practice of self-care, and self-compassion.
I want you to stop worrying about diets, and cleaning solutions, and to begin finding joy in all things that serve you…nutrition, exercise, sleep, healthy boundaries, your loved ones, and your own passions in this life.
I used my training and education in Healthy Lifestyle Coaching and Ayurveda, along with my experience as a breast cancer survivor to create coaching programs that would help other women recovering from breast cancer.
In 2020 I took all I had learned and applied it to my own life again when I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic disease.
Knowing I have the power to manage my mind and choose to focus on healing my body with love and self-compassion rather than fighting cancer with bitterness and aggressiveness has been a game changer for me, and it can be for you too.

"After being diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer and undergoing the torturous treatment regimens of surgery, chemo, and radiation, I was in desperate need of tools to empower me moving forward. Laura’s Revivify program was just that. Through encouragement, connection to resources, and daily activities, I became empowered to take action in the best way for me! "
"After listening to the Breast Cancer Recovery podcast throughout the many months of my reconstruction surgeries, I was thrilled to hear about Laura’s Revivify program. For me, the podcasts were like a visiting neighbor, girlfriend or sister caring for my emotional well-being during a fragile stage. But now that I’m stronger, Revivify is great because the modules challenge me personally to think deeper and take definitive action. Laura breaks it down into short lessons with guided materials to support. Plus, the shared group and video calls bring a needed sense of community. So now, I feel more whole and I’ve learned to face fear. Like Laura says, You have to take fear by the hand and say, “Come on with me you little sh..” and journey on. Kiss, Kiss Laura & forever grateful. "
"When I was finishing my 2 years of breast cancer treatments, I was really lost. I was grateful to be alive, but I wasn’t the same person... People told me I had won the match, but I just felt different, beat up and confused. When I started listening to Laura’s podcast (she) made me feel not only comforted, but hopeful...She is an excellent coach in the Revivify Group...I am so grateful to this woman I have never met for caring enough to provide incredible support for me in this “after cancer” space. I felt very alone, but now feel so much sisterhood and validation, knowing I am not crazy (maybe a little)."
