Biography — Becky Naugle, Ph.D.

Becky Naugle’s experience with professional women started early. When she was 13, she started working for a women-owned neighborhood grocery store. During high school, she worked at a local florist, owned by two amazing women.  While attending college Becky worked in a variety of small businesses, most of which were owned by women. She received her Bachelor of Science in 1981 from Indiana University, making her the first in her family to attend and graduate from college.

In 1984 she started Cornucopia Catering while “keeping her day job”, working 80-plus hours a week to get her business off the ground. She worked with business owners and community leaders and was recruited to work with the Washington County Awareness Leadership program. This provided the opportunity for her to work on several community development projects, including small business development and retention.

After successfully exiting her business, she decided to continue her education by working on a master’s degree. The Indiana University faculty recruited her into the Instructional Systems Technology Ph.D. program. The program allowed her to focus on developing her training and consulting skills and also allowed her to pursue her interest in small business and leadership development. While completing her Ph.D., she worked for Charter Performance, a women-owned consulting firm in Indianapolis, which allowed her to further refine her consulting skills.

In 1998, she joined the University of Kentucky’s Small Business Development Center as an associate state director of the network. She became state director on Oct. 1. 1999. Each year the SBDC serves more than 2,500 clients and more than 3,000 training attendees across the state.  The program has created a legacy of economic impact to the Commonwealth.
