Ponder's Personal Chef Services
Michael is booked and busy. He’s the head chef at a senior living community, the owner of his own catering business and the father of a 3-year-old son—and he’s not stopping there.
Kaylyn Avatar
Pandora Castleton
Finance and Business
After graduating from high school and attending University of Indianapolis for a while, Kaylyn decided college wasn’t the best fit. She started working in retail, but Kaylyn didn’t see herself moving up, working a job with little to no growth opportunity. She was also looking to move out of her mother’s house and needed more income to be financially independent. Kaylyn was looking for a better future.
