About Essex Hub

Essex Hub is a coaching and consulting organization that hosts 3 co-working and co-creative spaces in the heart of Essex Junction, Vermont. Originally founded as the Living Room Center of Positive Change by Kristin Humbargar, it has become an organization that has impacted Essex significantly. Essex Hub was officially established in 2017 through the partnership of Kristin Humbargar and Elissa Koop after considering the invisible economic fabric of women in our communities. Together, they have coached and consulted with many women about their businesses, partnered with WBON to create an Essex Chapter, launched Main Street Studio, a creative co-working space for artists, helped support the launch of Words & Pictures as one of its member tenants, envisioned and produced steAmfest, Essex's first annual arts and innovation festival and artist / maker market. In a year of growth and redefinition, Essex Hub plans to continue to support the community through a hub and spoke model of dedicated spaces that affordably support and incubate micro businesses, offer coaching, consulting, and connection.
