Jennifer Braster, founding partner of Naylor & Braster Attorneys at Law, and Laura Hess, a master certified coach and owner of PUSH Where It’s Easy, have formed Women’s Business Council of Southern Nevada as an association of professional women focused on creating strategic alliances to build and strengthen their business.
“As a woman in a highly competitive industry, I have found the Women’s Business Council to be invaluable in helping me hone my skills as a business owner and attorney,” Braster said in a statement. “Even more important, the organization helps me be the best I can be in all areas of my life. I have met an amazing group of women through this organization.”
Braster is a managing partner of Naylor & Braster Attorneys at Law as well as a founding member of the State Bar of Nevada’s Animal Law Section and serves as treasurer.
WBC is open to all Southern Nevada business women and offers educational opportunities, business meetings and events, and community outreach programs to help members thrive professionally and personally.
“WBC has three primary goals; we create relationships to build and strengthen members’ businesses, use the opportunities from the organization to grow personally, and apply our skills and experience to benefit community organizations,” Hess said in a statement. “The women who are part of WBC share so much of themselves, and that is what women do naturally. We tap into that energy, launching and learning along the way.”
Hess founded PUSH Where It’s Easy, a division of The Coaching Resource Authority, in 1994 to help women progress and find success.
WBC has partnered with Hearts Alive Village, a local animal rescue that opened its first adoption center and retail store in Las Vegas.
