The Hive - Creative Coworking (2019 - 2022)
"There comes a point when we have to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in."
- Desmond Tutu
In 2018 I began thinking about how to align my career in vocational education with my passion for empowering women. Creating The Hive was a love letter to my community. Designed as a creative coworking space, The Hive served local ambitious women by hosting workshops, and pop-up events, and standing as a warm and artistically curated place to meet up with clients and customers; it was a space for women to show up in their entrepreneurial talents - in their own way - and on their own time. While this venture was not able to thrive amidst local politics and a global pandemic, I am deeply proud of what I created. From business planning and cultural development, defining levels of scalability, and branding and design, to marketing, communications, public speaking, and community engagement, everything I learned from opening (and closing) The Hive, was experiential - and profoundly impacted my existence as a creative professional.

"The Hive is among many female-focused workspaces gaining traction nationwide as women entrepreneurs and freelancers look for an alternative to traditional offices, with resources and training to grow their businesses."
"Both Cadwalladers have their hearts in the pulse of the community. They understand the vibrant, entrepreneurial spirit of North Idaho and they want to provide a space where business owners and freelancers, students and retirees, can share ideas, knowledge, and inspiration."
