About Shatha Barbour
Shatha left her corporate job to spend more time with her kids, and fell in love with the idea of creating a co-working space for women with a twist… it’s spa inspired!
One of the reasons Shatha worked so hard to get Hera Hub Phoenix up and running was because she understood the pain points and what it’s like to be a woman entrepreneur. Many of the women entrepreneurs that work out of the Hera Hub Phoenix are 35+ and have left their corporate background in order to launch something they feel passionate about.
