Antigone LoVoi: As a personal stylist, Antigone used social media to grow her client list, eventually running the Instagram page for high-fashion brand, Alice + Olivia. After that, she launched her blog, See by Antigone. Once her social media following grew quickly over the first year of the blog, more and more people began approaching her for guidance in the social media realm. Eventually, this turned into a consulting business where she takes on clients for a variety of needs from content creation to building relationships with influencers to basic tagging and posting and more.
Marek Cornett: Marek is a social media strategist at Koch Communications, a public relations and digital media agency in Oklahoma City. After identifying an opportunity for a previous employer to use social media for their marketing efforts in 2010, Marek fell in love with the ability to connect the offline communities around the brand to the online community she was building. In 2012, she joined Koch Communications as a community manager and has made tweeting part of her daily life since. Bonus fact: Marek met her charming husband on Twitter, so it really is all in the family.
Annie Tucker: Annie is the marketing manager for The Social Order Dining Collective, managing the marketing and social media efforts of four restaurants, nine locations and seven different social media accounts. She is also owner/blogger of Take A Bite blog, a lifestyle and food blog. She's a social media addict, work out-aholic, baker, cook, decaf coffee (sue me) drinker, and born-and-bred Sooner.

Clients use her firm for transactional work like starting or selling a business, structuring partnerships and financing, and contract negotiation. Ande began her legal career working at a boutique securities regulation firm as FINRA and SEC counsel to public and private companies. But she has been a landlord longer than she’s been an attorney, and she continues to manage and grow her real estate portfolio. She lives in OKC with her husband and two daughters.

The Women Lead Oklahoma Trailblazer Series features women who are leading the way in their fields. Our speakers share their journeys and answer your questions about navigating the professional world.
Women Lead Oklahoma is thrilled to host a conversation with entrepreneur, business owner, and community builder, Aly Cunningham.
Aly Cunningham was raised in Enid, Oklahoma and moved to Oklahoma City in 2003, after graduating high school. She spent a few years wandering around college and working minimum wage jobs, until finding herself standing in front of an opened door of opportunity in the restaurant world. She met Shannon and Camille Roper at the original S&B’s Burger Joint while they were planning on opening a few more locations. After five years of opening six locations and learning the ins and outs of restaurant management, she left the corporate world and joined Shannon in founding Happy Plate Concepts, the parent company of the original S&B’s Burger Joint and the sweetest little diner in town- Sunnyside Diner.
Since opening the diner in 2016, Cunningham has sponsored close to 1000 necessity bags given to the homeless community through The Sunnyside Street Team, hosts a give and take pantry at each location- with 24/7 access, houses a coat closet at the downtown location, and is already planning the 19th annual Cookie’s Thanksgiving through Other Options Inc, to feed close to 1000 people on Thanksgiving day. In 2018, Sunnyside Diner added two locations to the Happy Plate Concepts family, allowing them to expand their community outreach, such as co-founding Drag Queen Story Hour OKC for kids. This monthly event encourages kids of all ages to be proud of who they are- no matter what that looks like. Cunningham’s role over the years has changed as company needs evolve, however, most days she can be found alongside her team, teaching them to be leaders and providing the friendliest service and a quality of food of which they can be proud.
When Aly is not in the restaurants, she can be found dancing in the living room with her wife, Stacey, and trying to keep up with their sweet 16’er, Maya.
Trailblazer Tickets are $15 (free admission for Treasury members) and lunch will be provided.
