Starla West '95
Alumni Association Board of Directors President
Major at UE: Business Administration
Hometown: Clinton, Indiana
Current Residence: Indianapolis, Indiana
Current Occupation: Founder and President of Starla West International - an Executive Presence and Business Leadership Coaching and Training Firm
After graduating from the University of Evansville in 1995, I entered Corporate America where I enjoyed 15 successful years in various marketing and image management roles. But then in 2009, my entrepreneurial spirit took over. With an unwavering leap of faith, I left Corporate America and used my personal savings to form Starla West International - an executive presence and business leadership coaching and training firm.
UE Alumni Activities/Why I Give Back
I've been active in the UE network in Indianapolis for the past several years - attending events and speaking to student groups. I'm in my third year on the Alumni Association Board of Directors and recently began my term as president.
UE helped me establish the foundation upon which I've built my expertise. I am grateful for that so it only makes sense to give back to the organization that was instrumental in helping me do that. In addition, serving UE provides all of us with the opportunity to establish new relationships as well as nurture existing ones and I place tremendous value on that.
