I have a passion for helping startups and small businesses in our rural communities. I believe that with the right amount of support, our small towns can become vibrant, engaging places to live, work, and start businesses. Through Foundry Collective and Reinventing Rural I work to help increase access for small businesses entrepreneurs to proven curriculum, mentorship, markets, and funding.


This "place-based" work is done in partnership by supporting and building on the people and organizations that already exist in your community to promote inclusive and equitable entrepreneurship.


In 2022 I facilitated Bootcamp in Condon, Fossil, and Joseph, co-facilitated Tillamook with Misty. In 2043 we have offered Bootcamp in other rural location including Corvallis and Burns and I look forward to bringing Bootcamp to more rural places in 2024
