The path to success is seldom a straight line. In this inspiring episode, Colleen Echohawk talks about the experiences that shaped her life, beginning with her upbringing amongst her supportive tribal family in Alaska (which coincidentally was very close to Juliana’s), how the decision to attend a community college was so vital to her learning journey, and the invaluable guidance she received from her mentors. Colleen talks about how the power of community, of belonging, and following her personal motto to "drive for impact and let the rest follow," shaped a successful career that took her from public health research, to leading a non-profit, to running for mayor of Seattle, and to her current role as CEO of Eighth Generation.
Michael Stancampiano was in law school when he was drafted to fight in the Vietnam War. And suddenly he wasn’t sure if he’d ever graduate. But eventually he did just that. He became a lawyer, then a judge, moving from Oklahoma, to Alaska, to Colorado, and briefly to California. Michael worked with native tribes across multiple states, settling land disputes and diving deeply into the Federal laws that impacted their lives – all while raising 4 children. In this very special episode, Juliana interviews her father, sharing insights about her upbringing and her Native American roots.

Exploring the teammate mentality for success, Juliana talks with her best friend from college and Byline Bank CFO, Lindsay Corby. Lindsay switched from competitive swimming to starting a Division One rowing team when Title 9 provided the opportunity, and the lessons learned stick with her today in the male-dominated field of finance. They discuss paying it forward to other women, the benefits of sitting on boards, and how to make cold-connections on LinkedIn.
Juliana interviews Amy King, CEO of Pallet, a Seattle-based non-profit building affordable micro-housing for the unhoused and in disaster areas during emergency responses. She’ll share about her journey to this point in her career and advice for others looking to do similar work.
