From Laid Off & Living with Her Parents to a Million-Dollar Business

In 2013 after a successful 13 years working in corporate America, Andrea Gribble found herself a laid off, single mother with no choice but to head back home to live with her parents.

After a stint of helping small businesses make their mark on different social media platforms, she decided to niche down when asked by a friend and superintendent of a small K-12 school in Wisconsin to help start their social media presence. This experience is what ultimately led her down the path to where she is sitting now as CEO of a million-dollar company known as; #SocialSchool4Edu.
