“She is an incredibly enthusiastic, outgoing, personable and dynamic young lady,” said mygooi founder Jay Namboor. “She’ll shadow operations of two gooi marketing professionals, Bernie Mitchell from Mainyard Innovation Project in England and Jon Buscall at Jontus Media in Sweden. She’ll be a great, gooi, spokesperson.”
Tomorrow (Monday, June 16), she’ll join Mitchell for a OuiShare Coworking Day.

Corpuz has worked in Creighton’s admissions office for a year.

Providing welcoming advice and campus tours for us, she is a bright, attractive, articulate young woman who has a promising future. Her skills will translate well to her new project.”
