As a doctor, entrepreneur, journalist, TV producer, nutritional consultant and one-time fashion stylist, Lauretta is no stranger to that search for passion and purpose. She started her professional career after graduating from University College London’s medical school. After a short stint working as a junior doctor in London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, she knew practicing medicine didn’t tick all the right boxes for her and so began her pursuit for passionate work. It’s a journey that’s taken her down five additional career paths, from studying at the London College of Fashion and interning with Net a Porter and L’Oreal, to news reporting and producing for CNN International, the BBC and Sky News.
Having changed careers five times (from doctor to fashion stylist, health journalist, TV news producer, nutritional consultant and entrepreneur), she’s mastered the art of climbing the career ladder and effectively breaking into new industries. She created The Ambition Plan because while the pursuit for fulfilling work can feel lonely, daunting and like hitting your head against a wall… it really doesn’t have to.
Lauretta leads The Ambition Plan’s digital career clarity course , which guides high-potential women through the same rapid-change method she used to end her search for that elusive dream job and go from confusion to clarity in a matter of months. Learn more about it here…
