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. 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.
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 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 and finding 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. (both literally and figuratively)
