Childless and childfree women come in lots of shapes and sizes. We are all colors, all cultures, and all ages. As much as we have in common, we are also very different, and we define ourselves without the label of ‘Mom’. And if you’re not a Mom, who are you? TheNotMom writer and childfree blogger Laura LaVoie interviews women without children with public voices to learn their answers.
Right now, we’re focused on preparations for The NotMom Summit on October 9-10, 2015. By introducing our presenters and speakers here, you’ll get an idea of who the women at the podiums really are, and their levels of expertise.
Meet Laura Bennett, founder of Embrace Pet Insurance. Her life’s work is to help pet lovers keep their furry family members safe and healthy. She will join veterinary behaviorist Amanda Eick for the Summit session, How to Really Spoil Your Pets. We count Laura among our favorite Momfriends and allies.
Tell us about yourself and your business.
I am one of two co-founders of Embrace Pet Insurance, a company that resulted from a business plan we co-wrote that won the Wharton Business Plan Competition. Embrace improves the lives of pets and their people by taking away the financial pressures a pet can bring to the family finances.
We’re also very proud to be a leading entrepreneurial company in northeast Ohio and we love to share our story so others can succeed, too.
I am a Mom to two daughters, Ellie and Erin, and three cats, Lily, Rocket and Rosie.
