Laureli began her career in science as a geneticist and molecular biologist. She worked in academia (B.S. UC Berkeley, M.S. Caltech) and industry (cancer research, agriculture, law, consumer products). She is a patent agent familiar with all areas of intellectual property.
She eventually realized her favorite subject and passion was people – understanding their motivations and behavior and using this awareness to facilitate making things work. She became adept at reading and using ThriveTypes, received certification in the integral, intuitive and somatic work of Robert Augustus Masters, studied Applied Existential Psychotherapy with Betty Cannon, and received certification in the Tools for Conscious Living and Loving with Gay and Katie Hendricks. Laureli also completed the Leadership and Transformation (LAT) training with Katie Hendricks. She applied these skills with leaders and business teams at Culture Counts where she also learned and integrated how to use Games for thriving in business.
