Christine Do came to the U.S. as a Vietnamese refugee in 1975. She credits her first experiences in America, which included a welcoming community in Phelps, N.Y., as a crucial part of her being able to succeed in business. After getting an education and 16 years of building a career in IT services, Do decided to start her own company, Soft Tech Consulting. She considers herself someone with a true entrepreneurial spirit, thriving on the excitement and exhaustion of starting-up and pushing to grow.
