“Survive So That We Can Thrive”
In homage to trailblazing women who have sacrificed themselves so that future generations could thrive, this discussion focuses on Shantaw’s journey to Nantucket, the obstacles she overcame to get here, and celebrates the many women who made it possible.
Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Shantaw moved to Nantucket in 2005 and attended Nantucket High School. She went on to study Communication & Culture at Bridgewater State University. Shantaw returned to the island full-time in 2015 and worked for several non-profit organizations before joining the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce. Currently, she sits on the board of the Nantucket Equity Advocates, is a member of the Nantucket Cultural District Committee, and was recently appointed as a Trust Member for the Affordable Housing Trust Fund. When not serving our business community, Shantaw can be found running her company, Supple Sirens Bath & Body.
