Bryce RiggsBobbi Custer '14

After changing her major several times, Bobbi was inspired by The Patricia Adams Lecture Series to look into business. After graduation, she opened up the Spotted Cow Coffeehouse, which employs adults with disabilities.

"The Patricia Adams Lecture Series gave me the opportunity to see strong women in business,” she said. “I thought this was something I could do. So I asked myself, ‘What are my passions and what can I put together to give others opportunities?'"
