There’s nothing we love to talk about more than the accomplishments of our graduates. Angela Sharpley ’16 was featured as part of In the Company of Women, a celebration of female entrepreneurs hosted by The Women’s Business Center.
After graduating from the EDWINS program at the top of her class, Angela began working with professionals to develop a business plan for her restaurant Pipe’N Hot Grill. She completed an internship with Sam Lindsley, Director of Operations, Michael Symon Restaurants, and soon after began working with The Women’s Business Center to start securing funding.
Angela tells it best in her own words:
As part of the event, Angela showed off some of her culinary skills by offering her delectable fried fish, kale salad and a creamy tomato pasta.
The EDWINS family was out in force to support Angela at this wonderful event. Board member Matt Fieldman, Chief Operating Officer/Director of Culinary, Gerry Grim, and Development Director, Valerie Maczak-Grim, were all in attendance to celebrate Angela’s accomplishments. We all look forward to her future opening of Pipe’N Hot Grill, and we’ll share details as we get them!
