Amber Sheasgreen, Community Futures Development Corporation of the Pacific Northwest, Prince Rupert
Amber Sheasgreen is committed to creating a vibrant and growing community in Prince Rupert and the region. Born and raised in Prince Rupert, she is an active member in her community and sits on a number of boards including the Special Events Society and the local Marine Search and Rescue Unit. As the Business Development Coordinator for Community Futures Development Corporation of the Pacific Northwest, she empowers entrepreneurs through business counseling and financial lending services.
According to Sheasgreen, with Prince Rupert and the region poised for growth, it is important for businesses and community members to step forward into leadership roles . “I believe that Taking The Stage® will offer tools to assist these individuals in being confident and encourage them to have their voices heard and share their ideas.”
Sheasgreen knows first-hand the impact of Taking The Stage® as it has helped her personally and professionally. “When I first enrolled in the Taking the Stage® program, I had all these great ideas to share but lacked self-confidence, rarely spoke up in meetings and loathed speaking in public. Since Taking the Stage® I have spearheaded various projects within Community Futures, joined a number of volunteer groups in my community and continue to offer positive change/growth by sharing my ideas and experience with the organizations I’m involved with.”
