Laurie Wolk

New York Board Member and Educator

Laurie Wolk is a family coach and the author of the bestselling book on Amazon, Girls Just Want to Have Likes: How to Raise Confident Girls in the Face of Social Media Madness. She has integrated more than two decades of professional experience as an educator, mentor, coach, trainer, marketer, therapist — and parent — to provide engaging programming that can help reconnect families and balance the influence social media has on their lives. A “go to” girl since girlhood, and a cheerleader at heart, she has been called a “modern mentor” by those who know her. Laurie received her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Emory University and is a certified coach by the Martha Beck Institute. She has a private practice in Larchmont, New York. Laurie was instrumental in helping bring to fruition the Westchester Children’s Museum and is honored to join the Girls Leadership Advisory board. An engaged and hands-on mother of three, Laurie understands kids and is able to connect with them both as a guide and a friend.
