She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in finance from The University of Texas at Austin.

Magatte Wade (panelist) is a passionate adventurer and idealistic entrepreneur. Born in Senegal, educated in Germany and France, she left for the U.S. as soon as she could to begin my career. Here she lived and worked in Silicon Valley at the height of the dotcom boom, started a beverage company that obtained national distribution at leading natural food retailers and distributors, and at its height featured former top executives from Peet's CoffeeSoBeOdwalla, and PepsiCo. She now leads initiatives at Skin is Skin.

Ivy Le (panelist) was in the AT&T War Room when the Apple iPhone launched and irrevocably changed the Internet’s role in business and in our daily lives. She led the business-to-business committee on Jackson Spalding’s social media team, and she speaks frequently at her alma mater, the Grady College of Mass Communications at the University of Georgia. She has published poetry and nonfiction, as prolifically producing content in her personal life as in her professional life.
