Bryn Carter

Bryn Carter

Founder of Charley Co

Bryn is a Midwest girl through and through. Born and raised in Rockford, Illinois, Bryn is the younger of two children to her incredible parents Steve and Lisa. Growing up, Bryn’s parents constantly encouraged her to ‘do her own thing’ and were firm believers in a good education but a non-traditional school sending her to schools that were based around Howard Gardner’s 8-intelligences. Here, Bryn learned from an early age how to voice her opinion and experience the world. Bryn graduated from Hope College and moved to Australia for a year before deciding to land in Denver, Colorado in 2010 where she has been ever since. With a background in marketing and a masters in creative writing, Bryn has constantly found herself amongst creative minds and freelance workers. It was about a year ago in October that Bryn had her ‘coming to Jesus’ moment and realized she wanted to do meaningful work. When she sat down and wrote out what was important to her, two things kept appearing on her list: helping build community and bringing women together. It was then that she decided to open a women’s community space that focuses on building women’s personal and professional lives in an inviting space. Charley Co. is a space Bryn hopes will act as a safe space for women to come and know their work is admired, appreciated and encouraged. When she isn’t living at Charley’s, you can find Bryn hosting women’s networking experiences called Safeword, spending time with her amazing friends or traveling with her man. Bryn is always excited to meet new people so feel free to drop her a line – bryn@charleycowork.com

Since 2003, she founded, invested in, or directed over 35 businesses, currently owns 3 active enterprises, and continues to “nerd-out” on books, meditation, movement, and the mountains (she also loves alliteration).
