Murphy intends to expand Perennial's mission through classes and outreach programs that target people in transition, such as women who've recently served prison sentences. And she has no intention of taking it away from St. Louis.

"I think opportunity is just abounding here," she says. "I feel really lucky to have been in St. Louis, to have had this idea. I don't know if I would have been able to create this in another city. There's so much space for things like this to happen — and by 'space' I mean physical space, entrepreneurial space, community space. People really support folks who want to do something and want to bring something cool and new to the city." — Chrissy Wilmes
