Karissa Le

Founder, Youniquely_Made

Karissa seeks to bridge the gap between creatives and management. She is fascinated by marketing and the ability to reach a specific demographic by understanding data. She loves numbers and nerdy details that explain why things work. She lives by a rule to always answer if someone asks about what God has done in her life - So ask her! She is amazed at God’s perfect plan and gives Him all the glory. Karissa and her husband Joe reside in Southern California. They enjoy rock climbing, eating, and laughing. She is the 1st place winner of the 2018 Biola Startup Competition and a recent Crowell School of Business MBA grad. She is also a Praxis Academy grad.
