Laurie Libman-Wilson Founder, Studio Penny Lane

Laurie Libman-Wilson
Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Studio Penny Lane is Laurie's baby.

Every time I find a penny, I think of my dear friend Conrad Morales who is truly my Penny From Heaven. I am reminded that many things will happen in life that we do not have control over. But it is how we choose to respond that determines how we feel, how we live, and how we affect others. I am grateful for the opportunity to have known Conrad and for the inspiration to create Studio Penny Lane: this would not have been if our paths had not crossed. Studio Penny Lane was founded in memory and in honor of the Morales family; may it shed some light on an unspeakable tragedy. One penny, one child, one thought at a time.


Studio Penny Lane was created to promote a global educational movement fostering Mindful Awareness for children. The goal is to positively reset the direction of how we teach our children by eliminating patterns of negativity, fear, and helplessness, and to replace them with the tools to love without condition, dream courageously, and recognize and nurture each child’s true gifts. Our intention is to empower youth to create positive change in their own lives and ultimately their families, schools, communities, and the world.
