Laura Conely founded Urban Paths, a walking wellness company,to lead clients and groups on walks where they can experience the profound benefits of being in nature. A certified teacher and nutrition coach, Laura shares research and strategies in her office which is the outdoors. Through her coaching, Laura helps people from all walks of life explore their gifts, find their strengths and climb their obstacles.
People of all ages appreciate Laura’s nonjudgmental confidential listening skills while enjoying the physical and mental-health benefits of stepping outside and taking a walk. Connecting compassionately with people is Laura’s super power. She uses it to help others understand that they are not alone and have a partner in her to walk them through life’s challenges.
Laura got in touch the power of walking as a timid preschooler when she was mesmerized by her classmate Jolene who commanded the room while wearing a pair of patent-leather go-go boots and singing These Boots Are Made for Walking. That song became her anthem and still energizes the sassy three-year old child within, as she walks off adult stress. Laura’s boots are now made for urban paths, but the energy and confidence embodied by Jolene, continues to propel them. People think walking is too simple to fill their physical and emotional needs but Laura’s goal is to get everyone to realize that it is not just enough, it is more than enough.
Laura also helps corporations, nonprofits, small businesses, and groups step up their road MAP—•Motivation •Accountability •Possibilities.
