Shallan’s lifelong entrepreneurial journey started with a lemonade stand as a child, a swimming lesson business as a teenager, and a tile installation company in her early twenties. Her work scope has been wide and varied since then.
Her most recent entrepreneurial accomplishments surround the conceptualization of a new product, MaskIT, the process of bringing that idea to life and the same product to market.
The skill set she has acquired during this process includes all aspects of business, contract manufacturing, operations, distribution, marketing, sales, and organizational management. Her leadership skills and flexibility have been vital for the success of the company. Shallan is honest and has the utmost integrity. Her positive attitude, love for learning, love for teaching and her humble nature make her the natural fit for CEO at MaskIT.
