Britt Hoskins

How do your colleagues describe you?

A mover and a shaker who is passionate about helping people, telling impactful stories, writing and marketing, teaching, advising, management and mentorship, and just generally creating order where once there was chaos. 90% of what she says is in joke form.

Why do you do what you do?

I have always been deeply invested in helping people pursue their dreams, whether it was helping faculty get grants, helping students find a meaningful career, or now, helping creative business owners do what they are most excited about. Small business development work matters to our communities, to our state, to our economy, and most importantly, to individual business owners. I’m honored to be a part of this work.
