More about our guest:
Tina Shattuck has 30 + years of experience in Human Resources, Event Production & Fundraising, Non-profit work, and Social Enterprise work. She is a serial entrepreneur who has owned and operated many of her own business from a non-profit live theater to Technical Recruiting, Internet Cafe, and Social Enterprises that empower women and mothers. Her last endeavor, Women Hold the Key combines all of the skills she’s gained into one very important focus – women – community – connection and support. Tina shares her life with her commercial fishing partner of 25+ years, three fantastic, fast-paced teenagers and a community of friends & family who bring a ton of richness to her life. When she’s not chauffeuring kids from one activity to another, teaching, or building community for women, she enjoys spending time at home with dogs, cats, and a long bucket list of art she hasn’t enough time to do justice. She is constantly “seeking the comfort of women, the support of women, and the need to be in the spheres where women gather.”
