Newly elected Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger answered questions about her transition from CIA agent to business woman to candidate to Member of Congress at our January breakfast.

She answered questions before record breaking crowd of 350 at the Cultural Arts Center of Glen Allen. More than 500 encorepreneurs requested spots for the event, but it was sold out in just a few hours. Rep. Spanberger talked about her journey from J.R. Tucker High School to the halls of Congress and about the steep learning curve from realizing she was a winner on Novemeber 6th to the floor of the House on January 3. And ,she shared some fun stories about how she told her mother-in-law she was a CIA agent, and how she completed her victory speech while her 4 year old daughter sat on her feet behind the podium. 

Nancy Eberhardt, a long-time encorepreneur and author of Uncommon Candor asked questions submitted in advance by the attendees.
