It's quite possible that Tracee Bentley has done something that has never been done before. At least in recent history, it was unheard of for a Governor of one party to appoint someone from another party to be their legislative director. But in the case of Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper, Republican, Tracee Bentley took on the role in that administration.
That alone makes her a worthy Brave Leader. She offered her special touch for meeting between party lines, and convincing political opponents that it was okay to work together. In that work, Tracee was successful, appreciated, and clearly, brave.
Proving her mettle, Tracee left the governor's office early this year, to start the Colorado Petroleum Council office for the American Petroleum Institute. Not only changing jobs, but advocating for an industry faced with fluctuation, with a determination to succeed.
Learn about Tracee Bentley's bold career decisions, and about who she finds inspiring. Hint: she is our first Brave Leader to point to her own child as an example.
