Limpert has actually figured out how to make it all work. But, as with every success story, hers has its own set of challenges and solutions.
She grew up in Utah as one of 10 kids within a blended family. College was an “it’d be nice to have” rather than a given until she took a job working in fast food at 18. When she found herself “sliding around on greasy floors,” she decided then and there that college was non-negotiable.
Eventually, she took a full-time job working nights at Hill Air Force Base so she could earn her associate degree in computer science.
Armed with her associate degree, she found a job with Novell, a software company based in Utah. She worked full time and started going to school nights at University of Phoenix (UOPX) where she earned her bachelor’s degree in business and information systems.
Limpert grew so inspired that she left her corporate job to start her consulting firm, RizeNext, in 2018. Today, RizeNext specializes in cultivating a culture of inclusion at a diverse range of companies.
