Hello! I'm Lauren Mercaldi and I'm a Certified Life Coach. Helping others find joy and fulfillment in their careers is my passion.
I hold an MBA from Sacred Heart University and after starting out in finance, I left my career to raise my three children. After 15 years, I re-entered the corporate world.
I spent the next 10 years working in various role for a top 13 Fortune 500 health care company, eventually attaining the leadership position I was striving for. But after a long work day of endless calls and emails, I felt burnt-out, stuck, and unhappy. I thought this is where I "should be" in my career, but was quickly realizing that it wasn't. The problem was I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and it was a frustrating and painful place to be.
I had a long list of dislikes about my position. But what I loved was coaching and mentoring my team to achieve their own career goals. It lifted me up, gave me purpose, and was in line with who I am.
So I decided to leave my job and become a Life Coach and I have never been happier!
I would love to help you find your career happiness too.
