Ms. Flanigan was inspired to pursue a career in the field from an early age, having always had a reputation as an outsider. She was excluded from many opportunities in Alabama because of her gender, but she found that more doors were open in the north at the time. She first pursued an education with Duquesne University, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in 1966. She then joined the University of Pittsburgh, completing a Master of Business Administration in 1970. She later continued her studies with the Illinois Institute of Technology, earning a Master of Architecture in 1990.
A respected voice in her areas of interest, Ms. Flanigan has been an active member of her community. The former national assistant secretary of the Young Representatives, she served as a computer technician for both of President Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns. A member of the National Organization of Women, she has prided herself on her ability to overcome industry sexism through her own perseverance and high levels of performance. She received many rejections for jobs and opportunities due to her gender, but she always tested well and proved that she was just as good as the men in her field, if not better than most. In light of her contributions, she is featured in Who’s Who in the Midwest.
