About Connie:

Connie Houlihan was raised in Teutopolis, IL, in a family of entrepreneurs committed to personal growth and development. She began playing piano when she was 5 years old and by the time she was 13, she had started her first business – a piano studio, Journeys in Music. At the time, she was a band student of Craig Lindvahl and in Kent Probst’s 7 th grade homeroom. We joke that Connie was the unintended prototype for the CEO program! After 20 years of running her own studio, she earned her Master’s in Education at the University of Missouri, St. Louis and spent 5 years in the St. Louis Public School system teaching general music classes, preschool through 8th grade. Since 2009, she has also operated Houlihan Fence, their family fence company, handling marketing, sales and accounting. In addition, she founded NannyNurse Network, an online, sick childcare agency providing medically trained caregivers in the patient’s home so parents can go to work when their child is home sick. She is a well-respected leader, building and training teams in multiple network marketing companies, has co-founded 2 women’s business networking groups (Wise Women Connect and Connecting and Promoting Women), is a real estate investor and a partner in Mere Clinics, a national multi-disciplinary medical spa. Connie is very excited to be part of this CEO Alumni Summit and brings her diverse entrepreneurial experience, along with her love of teaching, to this event.
