Today we’d like to introduce you to Claire Oksayan.
Claire, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
The birth of The Rush Coffee is both typical and unique at the same time. Typical in that it’s the story of burn-out from a non-profit corporate career and the need for freedom, more meaning and happiness. After ten years spent growing and learning in a corporate-run non-profit organization, co-founder Claire Oksayan (that’s me) was determined to make a change and break free. With two young boys at home, I felt like I was missing out on the most important pieces of life, and it was time to reclaim my freedom and my family. Together with my husband and co-founder, Parsegh, the idea for The Rush Coffee was born.
