Terri McCullough

When you hear the words Tory Burch what usually comes to mind is bright, preppy colors, ballet flats and trendy totes. But what should really come to mind is female entrepreneurs. Besides being a massively successful clothing designer, Tory Burch has decided to share her entrepreneur passions with other women through the Tory Burch Foundation. Launched in 2009 to help women and their families in the U.S., it empowers women entrepreneurs through microfinance and mentoring, enabling them to start and grow their own businesses. In turn, women are helping their communities, revitalizing local economies and providing for their families. In August of last year Tory brought on Washington vet Terri McCullough as Executive Director and we were lucky enough to talk with her about her career. [+]
