Get Shaken with us!
Join us on September 12 and get to know other like-minded entrepreneurs, business professionals, and leaders from the Saskatoon community. Shaken with a Twist aims to inspire & educate through storytelling & casual couch conversation as host Shawna Nelson chats with some of the boldest business women & leaders in our Saskatoon community.
Rachel is passionate about creating beautiful jewelry, and empowering women in the process. Her Regina-based luxury jewelry company’s success story is about more than making money; it’s focused on helping make a difference in the world – one sparkle at a time. Through determination, hard work and business savvy, the Saskatchewan-born entrepreneur was able to take a few beads and a dream and transform them from a one-woman, kitchen-table-based operation into a multi-million-dollar company, with a large staff, housed in a spacious, world-class facility. Along the way, Rachel has inspired, supported and encouraged women to also find their sparkle. Her company now has retail locations in Saskatchewan and Alberta, wholesale stores across Canada, and an online store serving customers globally.
Prabha is passionate about driving change to close the Gender Entrepreneurship Gap and the resulting Gender Economic Gap. Through her advocacy efforts, Prabha served as the first President of the Leaders Council of the Paul J. Hill and the Kenneth Levene Schools of Business at the University of Regina and currently serves as a member of the Paul Hill Advisory Board, University of Regina. A supporter of entrepreneurship, Prabha serves as a Judge for some of the community’s Business Awards and was also a Prairie Regional Judge for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Prairie Award. As an active member of the Board of Directors for the Saskatchewan Housing Authority, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and the Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation, Prabha continues to be engaged in the community to influence strategic change.
