Laureen Nowlan-Card

Laureen Nowlan-Card has been an advocate for women and children her whole adult life. Her natural passion for advocacy led to a successful career as a courtroom lawyer for over 20 years. Five years ago she decided that she wanted to support women in a more proactive and personal way, and became a certified Transformational Life Coach and then the first Canadian certified in Emotional Liberation Therapy. Laureen is committed to helping women create positive change in their lives on all levels; personal, career, leadership, and societal. Laureen guides women to release their self-doubt and limiting beliefs, and to work with their emotions so they can attain increased joy and peace, rather than continuing to be overwhelmed by difficult emotions. Laureen also leads Victoria WomanSpeak Circles where women learn the art of public speaking in a safe, feminine environment. Laureen is passionate about helping women and girls unleash the brilliance of their voices, and about creating a new non-patriarchal model of leadership. In all she does, Laureen is honoured to support women to create lives that are in alignment with their true purpose and their greatest vision for themselves.
