Christine Duffy Moore graduated from our BIOE program in 2007 and went to Savannah for graduate school in anesthesia. She is a clinical instructor for the Case Western anesthesia program and does that for three days a week. The rest of her time is spent on the business she started: Lil Buff, which is where they manufacture protein cake mix that is gluten free, microwaveable and has 26g of protein. "Even though I chose a different career path initially, the engineering mindset ultimately led me to develop a product and start my own business. It’s amazing how the skills I learned in engineering school and my co-op doing product development gave me the solid base to have the confidence to tackle entrepreneurship. I just wanted to thank you for your leadership and guidance during senior design. I fully believe that class planted a seed in me that led to creating this successful brand. I still do anesthesia 3 days a week but my husband quit his full-time job to run our production facility. We now have about 15 employees and continue to grow," said Moore. Check out her website here.
