THIS IS LAURA
In 2013, I took my daughter to a sports camp that turned out to be a disaster. I ended up pulling her out after the second day. Afterwards, I found myself saying over and over that I could run a better camp myself. So, in 2014, I started the Pigskin Princess Project, a flag football program for girls which later grew into Be Big Be Brave LLC. My mission is simple – to empower kids to be their big, brave selves!
Before starting my own company, I worked to empower girls in the field of victim services. I provided counseling and support to victims of crime and lectured on the topic of victimization to hundreds of audiences. It’s this work that has made me so passionate about creating a culture where children can live safe, happy, and healthy lives. I hold a master’s degree in Social Work and am a mom to a boy and two girls. I am big into food, and family and am beyond excited to join you on this Brave journey!
THIS IS LEAH
I have been working to empower women whose lives have been affected by violence for over 10 years. I’ve provided direct services to victims and lectured to numerous audiences about issues impacting women, as well as participated in advocacy efforts to promote safety and support for women. I am passionate about creating a culture where girls will grow up to become strong, bold, able, and fearless women.
Women as leaders is my jam. I have a certificate in Leadership Coaching through the Leadership Practices Inventory and have a devoted interest in leadership coaching and development for women and young professionals. I am a certified fitness coach, professional fitness competitor, and Girls on Guard self-defense instructor. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Public Administration. I am the proud and loving owner of a very large canine. I can’t wait to bring the Brave Project to your daughters and the world!
