#StandingOut with Amy Vance and Katrina Padron

July 19, 2017

Amy started Eco Modern Concierge in 2005 when she was an undergrad at the University of Houston, where she got her B.S. in Consumer Science and Merchandising, and later, her Master's degree in Commerce/Future Studies. It all began as a hobby in addition to school and a full-time job, as well as a means to pay for her study abroad programs in Mexico and Spain.

Since graduating, she’s been lucky enough to turn what she loves into a full-time career and she wouldn't have it any other way. She is passionate about what she does and her clients are so important to her, it seldom ever feels like a "job." Every day awaits a new and unpredictable challenge.

#StandingOut with Fran Dunaway and Katrina Padron

June 7, 2017

As co-founder and CEO of TomboyX, Fran is the central hub for all things TomboyX, and she collaborates with all departments to get s*&#! done.

When not working: Fran takes long walks with her labradoodle, and sneaks in late night games of Halo.

Being a tomboy means: Embracing her strong ability to lead; finding solutions to impossible problems; being an unstoppable force of female moxie. Bossiness came early to Fran—she often wrangled the neighborhood kids for a game of football or theatrical arts (with her playing quarterback and director, of course).

#StandingOut with Monica Kang and Katrina Padron

June 6, 2017

Monica loves building bridges, relationships, and communities.

She believes that change is possible when more people are able to understand and integrate into different worlds simultaneously. That integration is possible with creative thinking and an open mind. For Monica, those two worlds are entrepreneurship and public policy.

She has lived and worked abroad at the United Nations in Geneva and Chosun Newspaper in Seoul. She got her M.A. degree in Strategic Studies at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University and her B.A. at Boston University. To satisfy her love for entrepreneurship and creativity, she also sought out to be a StartingBloc Fellow and Mentor, Hive Fellow, Design Thinking in DC member, a Startup Weekend Organizer and Facilitator in DC. She is also in the process of being a certified coach and proud to be part of Coach Diversity Institute based on International Coach Federation standards.

Her love for interactive experience, safe space, and vulnerability reflects deeply in the curriculum she builds at InnovatorsBox. Her joy is to create 'aha' moments for the attendees because the best learnings comes by 'being in the moment.' She is a strong believer of 'learning by doing' and focuses on creating a safe space for deep inner search and discovery.

In her spare time, she loves to travel, read, paint, and teach Korean. You'll often see her with a chai latte and chocolate croissant at a cafe.
