About this event
This year's TEDxWausau conference is all about detail. We will be identifying ways in which dotting i's and crossing t's leads to personal and professional success. We will specifically address how to bridge gaps between a student's academic preparation for success and finding actual success in a professional career.
A non-traditional student in every sense of the word, Amy Miller left high school at age sixteen to explore a career in dance. Following an apprenticeship with Ballet Wisconsin, she became the Dance Director for Salto Gymnastics & Dance in Brookfield. She founded several small businesses and entrepreneurial endeavors before deciding to return to school at age 28. Amy is a student at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point’s School of Business and Economics and will be graduating in Spring 2013 with degrees in International Business and Business Management. She is currently applying to graduate school and enjoys yoga, food and wine, and spending time with her six-year-old son. Amy is obsessed with movement and still abides by the simple mantra she learned as a young student of ballet—It’s not the fall that matters, but rather what you choose to do after the fall.
