Emily Coborn ’08 was the alumna speaker during the CSB Kick-off at Reunion 2018. As a Bennie, she was a communication and Spanish double major and a member of both the track and cross country teams. In addition to her bachelor’s degree from Saint Ben’s, she also holds an MBA from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.

During her kick-off presentation, Emily focused on the Energy Project — or, as she said, “how I’m perfecting the art of abandoning perfection.” She believes this is a battle many women fight and that we need to take perfectionism off the list of things we deeply value.
