Meet Our Hosts

LAURA HENRICKSON: CO-FOUNDER:

I am a mom to M & M, who I adore embarrassing at school drop-off by kissing and hugging them. They return the favor by dragging me out of grocery stores for talking too much! I’ve been married to a man I admire and love (and never thought I’d find) for 14 years. You might find me happily singing in the shower or traveling wherever the opportunity arises, but wherever I am, I love to be laughing loudly and with family and friends. I sometimes wonder if I should have been an auctioneer or ran away with the circus. I appreciate a detailed recipe and find peace in keeping things organized. My energetic and outgoing heart was built and my values were fostered in a small Midwest town. Everyone matters and no one ever should feel alone. I am a mom with a mom in heaven, a dreamer, a lover, and the founder of BenefitCrashers.


LEAH MORRIS: CO-FOUNDER:

Proud Minnesota Mama of three little girls and a loving INTP personality type hubby. I listen to audio books when I run, refrained myself from daily mochas stops at Caribou to only on special occasions, and an optimist at heart with infectious positive energy brought into any environment – often times resulting into pouring tons of heart & hustle into my passions. This energy often leads to inaudible voice & text messages as I talk super fast and skip spell check when I am excited. I am working daily to be mindful to ensure I am leveraging my gifts to make a difference. We are all in this thing called life together; we all get one chance - lift each other up, let your light shine & love hard.

My name is Jodi Mayrand and I am a wife and proud mom of 2 hilarious and crazy boys. Benefit Crashers to me has been many things. I have loved seeing my friend's dream come true as she is so passionate about being there for others. It has been such a fulfilling thing to bring my boys to these crashes so they can experience the awesome feeling of people showing their true gratitude for what we are doing and they see what a difference you can make in someone's life just by being there. One more thing, THE PEOPLE!! I love meeting all the wonderful people who are all passionate about the same thing. It really is a great time crashing benefits!!!
