Eve Phelps M’04
EvePhelpsM.B.A., marketing and nonprofit mangement

Work: Eve Phelps Marketing LLC. "I help small businesses and startups grow. Every business needs marketing, and I am the behind-the-scenes person who creates a brand for my clients and then brings this brand to their target market."

Home: North Wales, Pa., in suburban Philadelphia, with her husband Jim. They are expecting their first child, a girl, in April.

Proudest Achievement: "Owning my own business. This has always been a dream of mine. To be able to successfully start a business during a recession, and stick with it for several years, all prior to me turning 30, has been a major accomplishment."

Best RMU Experience: "I really loved the hands-on classwork. In one of Prof. Jill Maher’s marketing classes, we created, administered, and analyzed the results of a customer survey that was then used by Wholey’s Fish Market. Being able to interact with 'real' customers and create work for “real” businesses was one of the main reasons why I chose to attend RMU. To this day these hands-on experiences have helped me with my own business."

Last RMU Event Attended: The Philadelphia alumni event this past fall.

Why She Stays Connected: "I really enjoyed the family atmosphere. Everyone, from the staff to the professors to my fellow classmates, consistently made me feel at home during the program."
