Before the pandemic, like many others, I had big plans for my future. I'd been in the healthcare game for nearly two decades, jumping through different roles until I landed a position in the Strategy Outreach department where I have been focused on outreach, marketing, business development, and strategy for the past ten years, before eventually deciding attend Syracuse University's Whitman School of Business for grad school.


But then, bam! The pandemic hit, and my dreams took a detour. Suddenly, in-person learning was out, and online studies became the new normal. So, from the comfort of my home, I traded classroom vibes for deep dives into case studies from the Harvard Business Review and other reads. I got all up in the triumphs and struggles of entrepreneurs, all while watching the pandemic mess with my community of business-minded folks.


Driven by a burning love for my community, I set out on a mission to start a podcast. This bad boy would shine a spotlight on the toughness of entrepreneurs in the Pacific Northwest. Instead of just reading about these folks, I wanted to chat with them directly, uncovering their one-of-a-kind stories. My guests aren't just the big shots; I'm talking small business owners, startups, local mom-and-pop joints, and sometimes even big-shot entrepreneurs known nationwide. These guys and gals have not only blown up their businesses but have also danced through the maze of the stock market, sticking around as successful entrepreneurs.


"The Shades of Entrepreneurship" is all about making noise for our local economy in the Pacific Northwest. Through my chats, I want to give you the lowdown on the varied stories of entrepreneurs who've shaped our economic scene. If you're itching for some practical business ideas, this podcast is your go-to for inspiration and knowledge, knitting together the tales of our local entrepreneurial spirit.
