For women on the go Karen Ansbro Leone created a women's travel business, Go N' Groove, after her family moved to Rochester, N.Y., as a way to reconnect with former acquaintances and friends. "I sat down and started planning the trip to Vermont and crossed my fingers that people would go," she said. Today, eight years later, she is trying to breathe new life into Go N' Groove in State College.

After years of putting off trips to visit various friends scattered across the country, Karen Ansbro Leone ’84 came upon an idea in 1998. Putting her meeting planning skills to use, she planned a weekend trip to the Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vt., and invited several friends, encouraging each to bring along a girlfriend who they hadn’t seen lately. The women spent the weekend relaxing at the spa, shopping, dining, and simply enjoying each other’s company. Leone’s idea was a hit, and her travel venture, Go ’n Groove, was born.
