She earned her BA from Mount Union College. Her career’s humble beginnings started at the Joseph Horne Company.

She attributes a lot of her strength and ability to lead on her upbringing. She was raised with 2 brothers. Her father was a football coach who treated them equally and didn’t cut her any slack for being a girl. Due to that she feels comfortable and confident in her abilities.
This just shows the lasting effects of good parenting and the importance of treating children equally. If you daughter grows up knowing she is just as capable as her male siblings then she will not hesitate to step up to her male competition. If she is raised to know that she is equal, she will not know any different. Young girls should be educated on the trail they may face outside of the home but they also need to know they can rise above them.
