After graduating from Wofford with a degree in business economics, Tatelman worked for her family’s company before realizing she belonged on the water, not in the office.

“The reality was that my heart wasn't in it,” says Tatelman, who decided to follow her passion instead. She started FlyandFlow, a business based in her hometown and favorite fishing destination of Marblehead, Mass.

“I've finally found my true pursuit in fly- fishing,” she says. FlyandFlow encourages more women to get on the water. “These trips are designed to support other women, disconnect, recharge and get outdoors, which is what I love about fly-fishing so much.”

Wofford’s January Interim helped Tatelman recognize her passion for fly-fishing, laying the foundation for her to use her education and her interests to create her own business.

“While I grew up with a familiarity of fly-fishing, it wasn’t until 2009 while I was at Wofford that I first picked up a fly rod. My first fish on the fly was during an Interim trip to Crooked Island in the Bahamas,” she says. “I was hooked.”
