Virginia Marti Veith
Virginia Marti Veith began studying fashion in New York City before  moving to Paris to study haute couture. She returned to the states several years later where she opened a bridal salon but then struggled to find expert staff so she began training students. This led to her establishment of the well-known Virginia Marti College of Art and Design, which she opened in Lakewood in 1966. After decades of living her passion, Virginia sold the college in 2015 to focus on her second love - missionary work. Today, the school operates as The North Coast College, where Virginia serves as President Emeritus.
  • Learn how Virginia Marti Veith went from studying haute couture in Paris to opening the Virginia Marti College of Art and Design right here in Northeast Ohio.
  • Learn about the trials and tribulations she faced as a mother of eight while living her passion operating an art and design college for nearly five decades.  
Anna Dey
Local entrepreneur and fitness enthusiast Anna Dey worked in outside sales for a few years after college but wanted to pursue a career in the industry that fueled her - health and fitness. Ten years of competing  in bodybuilding, power-lifting and triathlons led her to open Anytime Fitness Concord in 2012. Six years later, her passion continued to grow and she opened Clean Eatz, a healthy lifestyle and meal planning franchise located in Mentor.
  • Hear what fuels Anna and why she is so very passionate about health and fitness.
  • Learn what drives Anna to succeed and how failure is not an option.
