Laurie Barraco’s gifts as an intuitive and psychic have always been present, though she was not always a practicing professional. She initially worked as a teacher and paralegal that provided her with financial security but did not make her feel fulfilled on the inside. She continued her personal spiritual journey by taking meditation and psychic development classes, expanding her skills and confidence in her abilities. She decided to leave the security of her 9-5 position to explore jobs in the spiritual field. In less than a month, she was hired to run the front desk of a metaphysical center in Bonita Springs. After a few years, she was ready to take a huge leap of faith and open her own center. She wanted to build a place where people would be able to grow spiritually in a comfortable and safe space.
