Coach Spotlight: Laura Davison
As a transition coach, my biggest strengths are my huge heart for helping others, my active listening skills, and my empathy toward the difficulties of relocating. With a degree in applied and behavioral psychology, I enjoy addressing all the personal and emotional needs that arise during relocation. I love making a direct and positive impact on someone’s life. Offering a warm, friendly voice and practical resources as someone goes through a big life transition enables me to support them in realizing their full potential.
Whether it is through a listening ear, coaching support, or research on the new community, I am committed to making the transition the best possible scenario. I work with single employees and families as they prepare for their relocation and determine what they need to build a new life. I especially enjoy working with new hires, young single professionals, and families with young children. When things feel overwhelming, my best advice for clients is to make a list to refocus on what is in their control and what is out of their control. I also remind the individual to rely on a support team and to not be afraid to ask for help along the way.
Over the years, I have worn many hats at IMPACT Group. I started as a temporary employee in the research department in 2007. After becoming a full-time employee, I quickly moved to the career and transition coaching team working directly with employees and families who were relocating. I later enjoyed my role as an Account Executive, overseeing all of the company’s domestic RMC partnerships while securing big opportunities with key corporations. My passion has always been in coaching and having a direct impact on others, so I transitioned back to my coaching role in 2015. I am definitely living my dream now with both my role at IMPACT Group and my role as a mother.
Born and raised in Missouri, I married my high school sweetheart and we now reside in St. Charles. My favorite job of all is being a mother to our two beautiful daughters. Some things people don’t know about me are I trained at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs as part of their Junior Olympic Program, I could hit 99 out of 100 free throws at basketball practice in high school, and I enjoy watching travel shows like Rick Steves’ on PBS.
