You know it.

What’s your background?

I am dance studio owner’s daughter. I grew up in Hempstead, NY.

I served as a Congressional Intern on Capitol Hill, earned a BA from The George Washington University, and  an MBA from University of Texas, Austin.

I’m a member of National Speakers Association, and the host of TALK RADIO FOR SMART DANCERS.

I have been on episodes of Glee, Switched at Birth, and the Gregory Hines Show.

I toured with two of my sisters as a tapping and djembe drumming trio. We were Three Sister’s Tappin’. Then my younger sister quit (family drama). My older sister and I carried on as Two Sister’s Tappin‘. Then she quit. Now I’m A Sister Tappin’.

My first book, Rich by Choice, Poor by Habit, encourages readers to TAP IN to their full potential. I manage this site along with my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Thanks for asking.

Yours in love and dance, Laurie
