Gail DePriest

I teach Innovation & Creativity in the MBA for Entrepreneurship at Clemson University. I believe our creator made us in his imagine.... to create. My grandparents provided a firm. foundation of Christian faith in our family. I can still hear my grandfather singing all the old hymns while I played piano. I am beyond grateful for all the grace and mercy I have been given on my journey. My hope and prayer is to pay it forward in my work... to students and others. God is so very good.
