Pam Tanase’s entrepreneurial spirit was instilled in her at a very early age. She said, “My parents guided me towards creating ways to earn money. I had a house cleaning business, horse and dog boarding business and a baby-sitting business prior to college.”
She spent a few years teaching and a decade coaching athletics, then took a break from working when her two children were young. Pam re-entered the work force with her husband when they purchased the territorial rights to develop a massage brand in Southern California. They became the owners and operators of three different Massage Envy locations. That served as training for them to launch, Workzones, the first coworking club in downtown Santa Barbara, in 2013.
