PSOW Staff - Friday, June 10, 2016

I am a proud second-generation Protocol School of Washington (PSOW) graduate who graduated in April 2014 and am delighted to share my story. Immediately following my training at PSOW, I had the tools and network from PSOW to launch my own business and become an entrepreneur after working in Corporate America in the financial services industry for many years. PSOW inspired me with the teaching methods, curriculum, resources, network and friendships to believe in myself as a new entrepreneur. I became the Founder and President of a successful new small business called the Cincinnati Etiquette & Leadership Institute, LLC (CELI) and have conducted etiquette training programs for Fortune 500 companies, small to mid-size companies, universities, and high schools. I have also become a columnist for my local business newspaper and a national columnist for a women’s business leaders news site. Thanks to PSOW, I am having the time of my life!  Read more
