Partnering with women to create change

Can you imagine what our world would be like if women could bring their full gifts to bear?

If we are blazing trails now, can you even imagine what would be possible if more of us created from that place of....freedom? Without the need to explain, apologize, justify, get permission, negotiate or twist ourselves into a pretzel at every blessed turn in the road?

My name is Lael, and I want to live in that world sooner than later.

And that, my friend, is why I created SheChanges. It's all about change powered by women—individually and collectively—to lead us toward that future.

I help women to move forward on their own terms and in their own way—boldly, unapologetically, and with a great deal of intention.

My work is designed to support badass women like you in finding the crack in the matrix, a wrinkle in time, and your very own platform 9 3/4 to help inspire and move you—and then all of us—to action. Not by becoming someone you're not—but by embodying more of who you already are. Naturally.

If you've found your way here, rest assured you're no longer alone. You're in really good company, actually.

So welcome aboard, woman. Let's ride.

An Unscripted Evening

Are you a fan of SheSpeaks and hungry for some more storytelling? Join me for this unscripted evening in a Yarmouth, Maine, where I share all those stories that didn’t make it to the stage in December—as well as some themes from my work with women, latest musings I’m playing with, and a sampling from my upcoming book. It’s simply me that night, unplugged and keeping it real.   More information.


SheSpeaks Stories on SoundCloud

Were you at SheSpeaks, my two-day storytelling series held in December of 2018? Don’t you wish you could hear the stories that were told on stage at SheSpeaks just ONE MORE TIME? Or were you not able to go to those two powerhouse evenings because you don’t live near Portland, Maine? For the first time ever, we have beautiful quality audio recordings of the ten speakers’ stories told over that two-day event—including my own stories—and we’ll be uploading them to my Unscripted Woman Podcast all during the month of March to celebrate them during Women’s History Month.

My Second Book Is Powered By Women

I’m happy to report that my second book is now written and ready for it’s first round of editing. I am so damn excited about this, and am eager to move this out of manuscript form and into your hands, but I need your help to get it there. In many ways, this book is ours. I may be it’s midwife, but you—the women of SheChanges are its lifeblood. Together, we can bring it into the world, so if you want to be a part of that action, please check out my GoFundMe page so I can deliver this to you by July 2019. Let’s DO this, woman!

Maine Women’s Magazine Interview

I was so honored to be featured in the March issue of Maine Women's Magazine on "Women Who Inspire". The writer described me as bumping up against a live wire. I'll take that.

My Telltale Story at Soundbites

In October 2016, I was invited to be one of five speakers to take the stage at the Frontier Cafe in Brunswick as part of the Soundbites Series. The theme was "telltale" and I had a blast. The videos are out now if you'd like to see for yourself. Here it is!
