"While I was a collegian, I had the opportunity to lead the Greek Council and later be our chapter's archon. These roles provided me with experience in people and project management, goal setting, networking and more — skills that have been invaluable in running a small business."

Where has your career path taken you since graduation?

Shortly after graduation, I went traveling, and a few years ago I moved halfway across the world after marrying a beautiful Irishman! This extroverted, perfectionist found the transition hit HARD! So I made a plan, I started my business Calibrated Concepts to have the flexibility I needed. Now my team and I design websites and systems for small businesses all around the world.
