Key Quotes:

  • “I actually got to apply what I was learning into the world in a way that was really making a difference. And, that to me, was super powerful to be able to see the impact of how these skills could be used to generate interest in a company, and/or impact in a community if I’m working with a nonprofit.” – Andrea Yoder Clark
  • “What I did as the CEO, was really make an effort to be understanding and compassionate with all my employees. Now, we all have life interfering in a way that we had to separate a little bit differently in the past.” – Andrea Yoder Clark
