“Early in my career, I worked for DePauw’s Annual Fund. My job was to travel the country to meet with alumni and ask for money. It was during that time I met Angie Hicks ’95, founder of Angie’s List, now Angi. I was fascinated how one person was able to start something from nothing and grow it into a million dollar-plus enterprise. Her work inspired me to join Angie’s List and had the opportunity to work in various functions of the business from marketing to sales to operations.
