Why Her Brilliance?
Laura Bennett and Kellie Jenkins founded Her Brilliance after seeing too many accomplished women leaders who didn’t fully recognize how brilliant they were.
Through our own leadership journeys we have discovered that our unique brilliance is creating safe spaces for women to come together, build deep connections, and find the confidence to transform their leadership.
Laura is a coach, facilitator and consultant in leadership development with experience coaching individual leaders and groups, and designing and delivering leadership development programs. She has supported clients in both the corporate and non-profit sectors, in industries including restaurant, professional services, technology and international education.
Prior to her dedicated focus in coaching and development, Laura has had over 15 years of experience in leadership development, talent management, organizational effectiveness and corporate communications. She leverages her organizational background to encourage clients to raise self-awareness and take meaningful action toward stepping into their full leadership potential and achieving their goals. Laura holds a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) credential through the Co-Active Training Institute and an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coaching Federation. She is also trained as a coach in mental fitness through Positive Intelligence.
A Midwesterner at heart, Laura grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and now resides in the sunshine of Denver, Colorado. She values authenticity, deep connection, adventure, health, and family, and she and her two children enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer out West. Laura has been a volunteer career coach for The Mom Project, an organization that connects women seeking careers with women-focused companies, and takes an active role as a parent coordinator in her children’s school.
