Mary Baldwin is pleased to announce elite Navy-officer-turned-farm-entrepreneur Caroline Perruci will give a presentation about building self leadership skills and resiliency at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 8 at the Staunton Innovation Hub.
The interactive talk will offer practical insights and techniques for dealing with adversity when constructing or expanding an enterprise.
On one hand, Perucci draws from experiences like training to become a pilot in a highly competitive — and male dominated — Naval program. She went on to become an officer in the elite Seabees force, where her responsibilities included rapidly constructing infrastructure and distributing targeted relief for refugees in war zones.
But the bulk of Perucci’s talk will focus on her decision to leave her prominent Naval career and strike out in a new, more self-affirming direction in 2016.
