Every Wednesday evening, Laurie serves as host of Your Financial Choices – Conversational Radio for Your Financial Life on WDIY FM, Lehigh Valley Community Public Radio (a local NPR member station). Each week Laurie offers education and guidance to radio listeners in Northeast Pennsylvania and online listeners worldwide. She invites guests to discuss a variety of financially-related topics. “I feel that my experiences (family and professional) have culminated in me having a lot of knowledge that I want to share,” she says. “I always wanted to be a teacher and this gives me that opportunity.” Laurie also contributes a weekly business column for The Morning Call’s Business Cycle – “Financial Health with Laurie Siebert.” Additionally, she has hosted education seminars for organizations and private companies on topics such as Financial Planning, Estate Planning for PA Residents and Federal Estate Tax.

Laurie is a Past President of the Estate Planning Council of the Lehigh Valley and serves as the Personal Financial Planning Column Coordinator for the PICPA’s CPA Journal. Laurie is on the Leadership Team for the American Heart Association Go Red for Women Lehigh Valley. She is also Treasurer of Women United (formerly Women’s Leadership Council of United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley), and on the organizing committee for TEDx Lehigh River.

Laurie enjoys problem solving and interacting with people. She discovered that she could combine the two when she started working with estates and trusts almost 24 years ago. She finds it most rewarding when she can explain complicated issues to people to help them through very sensitive times in their life, such as the loss of a loved one or a divorce.

After 30 years working in accounting and finance, Laurie says the fun part is getting to know people. “I put all my emotions into my work. I make an investment in people. It is important for me to be part of people’s lives.”

Laurie resides in Orefield with her husband and loves spending time with her son and two daughters. “I am honored to have three great children who have made great personal choices.” Laurie loves vacationing with her family at Lake Michigan and spending her free time doing mosaics.
