Episode 117 – Becca Shane

January 3, 2018

Becca runs her way to better coworker connections


Becca Shane didn’t get into running until eight years ago but she hasn’t stopped since, running 38 races in that time. She run everything from 5k’s, to 10k’s, to half-marathons and even the 48.6 miles over four days “Disney Dopey Challenge” – twice!

In this episode, Becca and I talk about it’s human nature to want to create connections with others. This was especially true when she graduated college and moved to a new city. In order to create connections and make friends, Becca found that it was best to talk about anything except work. She says, “If you only talk about work, you’re going to be pretty boring.” In the corporate setting, Becca feels it’s more the individual’s responsibility to open up and share their non-work passions because the firm can’t force anyone to do this, especially since everyone has completely different interests.

Becca Shane is the Director of Finance at Hamilton Place Strategies. She’s a graduate of the 2017 AICPA Leadership Academy, as well as a Young Professional Advisory Council Member and a LEAD Task Force Member for the Virginia Society of CPAs.

She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, majoring in both Accounting and Finance.
