A St. Louis native, Doheny came to Mizzou to learn more about entrepreneurship in the Trulaske College of Business and quickly discovered that she could be a successful entrepreneur while still taking classes.

“Mizzou helped me launch my jewelry business, Astronobeads, that combines my love of business, fashion and astronomy,” Doheny said. “Being able to run a jewelry business while in college has opened so many doors. I am so grateful for everything Mizzou has helped me achieve.”

Doheny believes that the opportunities she had at Mizzou are available to all students. She encourages all students to get involved. “That's the best way to figure out what you enjoy doing and where you can find your people,” she said.
