I have the honor of leading the entrepreneurship program at John Carroll University since my arrival in August 2017. I am proud to lead our team who create valuable learning experiences each and every day for our students, our faculty and staff, and the greater Cleveland community. Our students continue to overwhelm me with their willingness to explore and share their purpose and their gifts with the John Carroll University community

Gabriela Beni
Associate Director of Entrepreneurship Programs

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to help students develop confidence and explore their ideas and passions. I am grateful to be a part of a team that serves students, stakeholders, and the surrounding community. Much of my work is geared towards implementing co-curricular activities, day-to-day operations of the Muldoon Center, and marketing & outreach efforts. Pleased to meet you and stay in touch with our growing program!

I have the pleasure of working with this very talented team to promote the entrepreneurial mindset at JCU and throughout Northeast Ohio.  The students are what makes this job so special. I have had many jobs throughout my life, but this is the best job and the happiest I have ever been. Thank you JCU and the entrepreneurship team.

Lisa Heckman
Assistant to the Kahl Chair in Entrepreneurship

I thoroughly enjoy the partnership and the environment that we’ve created in the Muldoon Center.  Our enthusiasm and passion is infectious as we reach out throughout the John Carroll community and the Greater Cleveland community.  It has been my pleasure to implement and execute our events with our outstanding team, as I have been primarily involved in the women’s initiatives.
