Justin’s Story

Fresh out of Duke University’s School of Law, married, and working in New York City, things were going pretty well for Justin Outling. He wasn’t just getting by, he was thriving. Something was missing though. Was New York City what he really wanted?

Justin and his wife, Cora, knew it was the best decision to make Greensboro home and raise a family. Both graduates of the UNC Greensboro.

Today, the 38-year-old practices business litigation and white-collar criminal defense for Brooks Pierce. He is also now a Greensboro City Councilman, representing District 3. Despite being a Councilman and an attorney, what Justin likes most is being with his family, spending time downtown and going to LeBauer Park.

“Coming home to Greensboro was an easy choice. Here we have the combination of big city amenities and a small town feel.”

Elizabeth’s Story

Page High graduate, Elizabeth Wicker left Greensboro for NC State, earning a degree in apparel design. She spent nearly six years in New York where she worked for famed American fashion designer, Nanette Lepore. Elizabeth found her way back to Greensboro and now works for Bradshaw Orrell Interiors.

“Though NYC certainly has a piece of my heart, this is definitely home. I love living in Greensboro—my parents are here, I’ve got a great network of friends and it helps that I like my job.”

More stories are happening every day.

Jodee Ruppel

From a small town in Indiana to the Big Apple itself, Jodee had her pick of so many places to settle down. With a Master’s from Columbia University and experience in the international nonprofit sector, any place would be lucky to have her. Living in Greensboro in the early 2000s, she wasn’t sure it was the place for her and her husband, Christian. Christian had grown up in Greensboro, but, like Jodee, couldn’t yet see himself back in the smaller city. But in 2016, with an eye on making a difference in a real community, Jodee knew she could get involved in GSO. They packed up, rolled up their sleeves, and Jodee and Christian got to work building the future they wanted.

Meet Jodee and see why she thinks you’ll find the community you’re dreaming of in Greensboro.
