Laura Coffee, Founder and President
I have over twenty years of experience developing new programs and services to support both individuals and groups. With a Social Work degree from The Ohio State University, I gained experience determining individual’s needs and then helping them to develop and implement a solution.
As the Founder and President of Parents at Work, I matched up the administrative and professional skills of parents looking to work a flexible schedule to the project needs of small businesses. I learned a great deal about business development and matching individuals skills and goals with the right companies.
Working with Rev1 Ventures (formerly TechColumbus) and nChannel, I had the opportunity to work with and support startups. I became knowledgable about business development and the highs and lows of starting a new business venture. I was fortunate to be able to build a large network of individuals and organizations in the Central Ohio area that either work for or support new businesses.
I began Painted Turtle Partners because I want to continue to help individuals to move forward, not only in their career, but also in their everyday life. I believe that you should wake up on Monday morning excited about the week ahead. Along with my degree in Social Work, I am also Certified as a Birkman Consultant and a Certified Professional Résumé Writer through the Professional Association of Résumé Writers & Career Coaches.
My outside interests are kayaking, hiking, photography and hanging with my two grown sons when they are available.
I would enjoy the opportunity to work with you and help you to “Love Monday” again!
