Cheryl Duvall

Meet Cheryl Duvall, our Center for Entrepreneurship Program Manager.  Committed to service, she is on a mission to help students, communities, and entrepreneurs maximize their potential! Following a non-traditional path, she has a wide array of experiences seeped in entrepreneurial thought and action. While her journey began in New England and has spanned the globe, she spent the past 11 starting and growing a family business on a small farm in rural ND.  A true lover of all things entrepreneurial, her favorite pastime is helping others recognize opportunities, realize their potential, and make the right connections to meet their goals. When she’s not studying, teaching, or strategizing…she enjoys designing spaces, planning and hosting events, and discovering the next great story!
