Short Bio:  Shatha Barbour is a passionate leader with a global vision! She has a diverse background with broad experience working in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry to co-founding a nonprofit organization to being CEO of Hera Hub Phoenix.  Shatha worked with the senior executive team of a hospital undergoing a 5 yr turnaround plan. From there, she moved on to work for Eli Lilly, a fortune 500 pharmaceutical company, where she covered roles from sales operations to global access strategy, improving the reach of medicine throughout the world among Lilly affiliates worldwide.


In 2010, Shatha Barbour moved to Phoenix and took a hiatus from her corporate background. She co-founded a non-profit educational organization called Good Tree Institute, that she actively participates in still. By 2014, Shatha realized she wanted to bridge these broad experiences, from her corporate background to her non-profit startup to pursue her passion:  cultivating and empowering women to fulfill their goals and business ideas in a collaborative environment!  Shatha started her journey of opening Hera Hub Phoenix in the fall of 2016. After almost 2 years in the making, Hera Hub Phoenix opened its doors in April of 2018.  Hera Hub Phoenix is designed as a beautiful landing space and launching pad for the women of Phoenix in all industries and backgrounds, yet not exclusive to just women.  It has already become that space with many business owners, professionals, organizations, and companies using the space as a workspace and training center.


Her ultimate vision is to build bridges between communities, especially women business owners locally, nationally, and internationally! In her free time, you'll find Shatha hiking, working and facilitation workshops with nonprofits, and spending quality time with her husband and three kids.
