EPISODE 1: STEPHANIE ROBERTS
We're excited to announce the launch of Wild Rye Radio! For the past few months, we've been working hard to bring you stories of breaking trail, and the characters that led the way. We'll be talking to women (and a few good men) about what they discovered off the beaten path.
In our first episode, we talked to Stephanie Roberts. Previously CFO at Old Navy and Specialized Bicycle Components, Steph is the founder of Flora Financial Consulting and grew up as one of eight children in a tumultuous household. After completing night school at 28, Steph used her degree to become the CFO of Gap Inc's largest division, Old Navy, all while balancing family and her own fitness. From imposter syndrome in the board room to how to ask your husband to be a stay at home dad, Steph shows us what it's like when you break your own trail.
