Welcomesode: Introducing the Launching Forward Podcast and Laila Alieh

Welcomesode: Introducing the Launching Forward Podcast and Laila Alieh

I am so excited to introduce the Launching Forward podcast! I wanted to create a podcast that touches on a variety of topics I have expertise in. Topics of future episodes include:

  • Nutrition
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Wellness
  • Working mom
  • Entrepreneurship

And so much more! I can’t wait to share all my knowledge with you and hopefully help you become mission fit and achieve your goals.

My Background in Math and Wellness

Since third grade, I was set on working for NASA. You could say it was a lifelong dream! I pursued a civil engineering degree from Purdue University and a Masters in mechanical engineering from Portland State University. I achieved my dream by working as a NASA engineer for a few years throughout my undergraduate and masters program as a Co-op Student Engineer in Training.

Something you’ll quickly get to know about me is I’m a lifelong learner. I love earning new certifications, so during the pandemic, I got certified as a nutrition therapy practitioner.

My two passions are math and wellness. You might think they’re complete opposites, but there’s a lot of overlap! I find my wellness clients need the discipline also required by my math students, and my math students need nutrition education to support their studies. That’s why I eventually decided to offer both services

Laila Alieh Services

I help women achieve their goals with healthy and proven weight loss programs. I especially love working with brides because I know the shortened timeline (along with everything else that comes with wedding planning) is super stressful. I help keep them accountable so they feel confident walking down the aisle. I was actually my first client for this service! I also love working with moms because, as a mom myself, I know how difficult body image can be after giving birth. I want to help all women feel confident in their bodies. You are BEAUTIFUL! 

With my background in NASA, I obviously love math and solving problems. I aim to help math students learn to love math by making it fun! I tutor everything from basic math to precalculus and also help students prepare for ACT and SATs. I had major test anxiety in school; coupled with ADHD and dyslexia, I struggled with tests. With that background, I know how to tutor students with similar challenges. Again, I help build their confidence so they can be successful in their education.

You can read my full story in math and wellness here.

Thank you for listening to my Welcomesode! I can’t wait to have you on board this adventure. I release new episodes every other week; see you next time!
