About Us

More than a business show, this is a story show... Let's listen to some of the women who make our world a better place and contribute to the greater good. Author and podcaster Tsh Oxenreider asks women—from all walks of life, who do all sorts of work—why they love what they do.

Attorney (+ a Podcast Announcement!) | 30

Lacey Beam is a small-town attorney, primarily doing indigent defense work. Where she lives and works isn’t large enough for a public defender’s office, so this means she works for a small firm, but the majority of her caseload is court-appointed work. She says it allows her to have her heart broken on a regular basis, but she’s grateful she gets to serve her community with this type of legal work. Plus, a big announcement about some BIG changes around here! Stay to the end. Notes:Lacey on Instagram

Conversational English Teacher | 29

Sallie Miura and her family have lived in Brazil for quite awhile, for her husband’s work, actually, but she’s taken it upon herself to create her own career as a conversational English teacher. She takes in students and uses the power of conversation to help them learn English without the hassle of a classroom.

Podcast Pioneer | 28

Liz Dolan has been a podcaster since before podcasting was even a well-known thing, which is why many in the industry consider her truly a podcasting pioneer. Her show, Satellite Sisters, has won more Gracie Allen awards for excellence in women's media than any other radio show/podcast ever. And before this? She was a badass in the business world, working for brands you might have heard of: Nike, Oprah, and National Geographic, just to name a few. Notes:Satellite SistersTsh onTwitter&Instagram

Biophysicst | 27

Lauren Porter is a scientist who does research at basically a think tank —you can hear it in her voice how excited she gets about the tiny little things most of us don’t even know about, much less pay attention to. But her work is so important, and it both depends on the work of others and contributes to what future scientists like herself can discover and learn for the betterment of our entire world. These scientists are truly unsung heroes, because they contribute so much to our society’s well-be

Hospice Mom | 26

Cori Salchert is a hospice mom. What's that? Basically, she says she’s ready and willing to receive babies into her home with her family who have a life-limiting prognosis or terminal diagnosis. Her job? Is to love them just like a mama for whatever time they have before they pass away. She has 8 biological children and have fostered or adopted 7 more children. Cori says she and her family aren’t professionals; they’re just here, telling their story so others are aware of the needs of these babies, a

Civil Engineer | 25

Amy Anderson's title is civil engineer, but really, she’s a water resources engineer — which is really cool, you’ll hear more about what that means in our chat. Amy’s part of the Partnership for River Restoration and Science in the Upper Midwest (pronounced "prism"); basically, she’s one of the many engineers who make our world function without most of us non-engineers even realizing it. Interviewing smart women like Amy has given me a newfound appreciation for engineers. Notes:PRRSUM in Min

Social Work Professor | 24

Both of Luci Ramos Hoppe’s parents grew up in poverty, but then she grew up with some wealth—and she’s the daughter of an immigrant and a woman of color. This all ties closely to her calling to social work education and social justice. In her work as a professor of social work, Luci’s focus includes diversity, ethical faith integration in social work practice, work with children and families, curriculum development and undergrad student experiences. And? She was the first person in her family to att

Dinner Gathering Host | 23

Kate Edwards hosts quarterly gatherings where 16 creatively-driven women, most of whom have never met before, come together and share a meal, conversation, and experience. Every attendee brings something both literally and figuratively to the table, and the night's success, from the tablescape to the food to the entertainment, relies upon the group's collective efforts. Kate started all this, and the idea has completely taken off. Notes:Create DinnersCreate Dinners on InstagramKate onInstagramTsh onTw

Project Manager | 22

Toni McEwan is a project manager, which sounds pretty broad, right? I mean, what is that, even? Well, she’s worked for her company, Dow Agro Sciences, for awhile now, but specifically, she simply leads teams of people. Her work is all about the people who do the work, making sure they have what they need to do their job well. She helps leads projects, from start to finish, and encourages people to do their best work so everyone can work well together — and if you’ve had any experience in the corpor

Literary Agent | 21

Jenni Burke a fairly unassuming literary agent, because she’s one of the nicest people in the world to talk to, but the woman can get things DONE when it comes to contracts, business negotiations, and representing her authors well. I love her approach and philosophy of slow publishing, authors living well so they don’t burn out, and writing from a genuine place of having something to say instead of writing just to publish something. (And yep… she’s actually my own literary agent, and as both an au
