In 2011, Emily Foote Williams co-founded an online education platform to help prepare students for the professional world. That company, Practice, was recently acquired by Instructure.
In this episode, you’ll hear how she’s earned a Bachelors, Masters, and a Law Degree. After years of traditional education, a Drexel Law professor’s teaching style completely changed the way she looked at education.
She was so passionate about spreading this style of learning that she gave up her law career to help bring it to countless students via technology.
While the company has positively impacted over 200 thousand students, Emily’s journey hasn’t been without its challenges. In 2015, the company lost its CEO to the Amtrak Derailment.
She’s also lead Practice through fundraising and acquisition while having and raising children. In doing so, she’s become a role model for those who want to grow both a young company and a young family at the same time.
