Diana Fagans
They're my school  •  Senior Account Executive, Visa. Previously Senior Associate, Prophet. Kellogg grad. Georgetown grad.
Mary Liz is an incredibly driven, outgoing individual with a passion for entrepreneurship. She is a strategic thinker, but has also proven ... that she can bring her strategic thinking to life: she founded and managed Perchance Boutique, a very successful high end retail boutique in Chicago, in addition to numerous other ventures. She is incredibly resourceful, bright, and persuasive, and is not afraid to roll up her sleeves (she even took a coding class "for fun"!). Mary Liz is a big picture thinker, and in my opinion, I think her cofounder would be someone who is able to quickly grasp the big picture idea and to be able to hit the ground running to execute it.
