A natural next step in her career, her most recent venture focuses on creating a space for pop-ups, whether retail, workshops or special events. In June of 2015, Natasha started a partnership with her long-time friend, where they combined their strengths and formed Little Mountain Shop and Note—a boutique bookkeeping company for creative professionals and small businesses, hosting a rotating roster of branded pop-ups.

Zoe Tissah | Zoe Tisshaw is a Vancouver-born entrepreneur who has dabbled in a range of fashion-related businesses before starting her current company – Park & Fifth.
