The McKibbin Sisters and James Oneil | Sharing the McKibbin Family Story

In this episode of Business Over Beer, we talk with Jennifer Harris McKibbin, Megan McKibbin and James Oneil. Jennifer and Megan are the daughters of John McKibbin who died in a plane crash in 2016. John was a prominent member of our community and a mentor to James Oneil, a long time friend of the McKibbin family and the founder of the McKibbin Legacy Classic Golf Tournament.  
Also, the McKibbin Sisters, as it turns out, are our kind people and we had some fun along the way too. The sisters are both small business owners themselves. Jennifer runs Look Within HR, providing consulting services to professional services small businesses. And Megan is a realtor for Windermere as runs a residential staging and design firm called M McKibbin Company. 
We’re so thankful to all three of them for sharing their stories about their family.
