Are your documents and passwords safe and prepared for the unknown?

Do you wish you could have peace of mind knowing that all your documents, bank accounts and credit cards were safely stored in a digital form?

Do you have secure passwords AND emergency contacts identified to access them in case of the unknown?

I call this having a Digital Disaster Plan.

Read on to find out more…

Do you ever worry that...



It often happens in the chaos of sudden sickness and disability.


Today, you only have minutes to cancel your cards.


$80 Billion of assets remain unclaimed in the US alone.


Are you really safe, or do you just think you are?


Losing precious photos and other information is devastating.


No one expects a fire, tornado, earthquake, or having to leave everything behind.

(If the answer to any of these is yes -- you're in the right place.)

Imagine instead that you feel...

  • Relieved that your passwords are stored safely in one place. No more password resets, thinking up passwords, or remembering them!
  • Confident that your credit cards and documents are stored in a secure "digital lockbox." For you -- AND your loved ones!
  • Calm, knowing that you have a plan for emergencies in place, AND have identified those who can access your "digital lockbox" when they need it.
  • Assured that your passwords are unhackable and your assets and info are safe!

Digital Disaster Planning is...

...planning for the future using a Password Manager.

...stopping the cycle of having to think up and then forgetting your passwords.

...becoming "unhackable" with easy but strong passwords.

...saving your important documents in a digital form that you will always have with you.

...knowing who will get your passwords and documents when they need them most.

...six weeks that will change your life forever (and your family's)!

Digital Disaster Planning is a course that will teach you exactly, step by step, how to create a “digital lockbox” for you and your loved ones.

I teach seniors and beginning computer users all the time, so this course is specifically crafted to be easy to follow and non-techie.

I hold your hand every step of the way and teach you just the way I've taught many clients before you.

I break up each lesson into bite-sized, doable tasks that you complete. The course is designed to be complete in six weeks, but — with lifetime access to the content — you can work at your own pace. Some people have completed their Digital Disaster Plan in as little as three weeks.

Oh, wait, let me introduce myself. I'm Laura!

Hi, I'm Laura!

I'm the founder of Digital Helpmates, and I've been tutoring individuals on their computers and smart devices since 2015.

Before that, I earned my undergraduate degree from Pepperdine University and went on to a career in advertising and graphic design. I've always been drawn to teaching (I have quite a few teachers in my family) and in 2006, I earned my High School California Teaching Credential from Dominican University. I taught at Redwood and Berkeley High School, both in the Bay Area.

After taking 10 years off to move to Bremerton, WA and start a family, I decided to go back to work -- this time as a technology tutor. I enjoyed it so much, and soon had many clients! I launched Digital Helpmates in 2020 (right before the pandemic hit). Now, I manage a team of tutors who help teach people in the way my clients loved -- with personalized, friendly, one-on-one help. I came to care deeply for all my clients, and my tutors do, too. To be honest, we all just love what we do!

Now that I have other tutors to help clients, I'm focusing on teaching in-depth courses on the topics I've been asked about the most by my clients over the years. One of my deep passions is helping keep seniors safe online.

I hope you will trust me to lead you on this journey!
