L. Marie LLC

L. Marie LLC is a coaching, communications, and publishing agency. We work with authentic, brave, caring individuals and organizations on extraordinary, lifelong missions to lift humanity. As the owner my job is to help you discover and unpack your unique leadership, voice, and story to stir and strengthen others.

When you’re in the market for a business or writing coach, a speaker or trainer, a publishing expert, or if you simply have additional questions about our services that you’re not finding on the site, please give me a call. I’d love to know you’re out there being amazing and looking for new, positive, powerful ways to move the generation forward.


I love working with men and women who are like me in this way: You never would have chosen the experiences of life that God used to mold you into the person you are today. However, your hard, remarkable, unique path has made you better and stronger for your mission in life. Now, more than ever, you know that you have a responsibility to use your leadership, voice and story lift others.

Away from the home office

  • Studying science from a Biblical worldview (ask me something!)
  • Playing tennis (very well)
  • Playing tennis (badly)
  • Watching others play tennis (and commentating!)

What do I know about using my leadership, voice, and story to move others?

When we overcome challenges and invite others to learn from our experiences, it inspires. It also takes deep soul searching to “go there.” When I was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 27 and told that I would never work as a writer again, it was devastating. When – growing up poor – I was told I couldn’t “make it” without a college degree, it was deflating. When I filed bankruptcy twice and lost my home and vehicle, it was sad. Looking back, I would change nothing. Today, my agency helps others share challenging, important ideas. I earned degrees in writing and leadership. I cherish the upkeep of my home and car because I know being without is harder. When I speak about leadership, voice, and story it’s coming from a place of hardcore experience. I compel clients to do likewise because I know it’s possible and it matters.
