The Nurse Becoming Podcast 

#050 Becoming Innovative Nurse Entrepreneurs with Lavender Co-Founders Pritma and Brighid

As we near the end of Mental Health Awareness Month, I lovingly want to encourage all of us to make some time to check in on our own mental health.

That’s why I’m introducing  two DNP-educated nurse entrepreneurs who have a lot of wisdom to share on this vital topic.

Meet Brighid Gannon and Pritma Dhillon-Chattha, the co-founders of Lavender, an online mental health platform that is rewriting the playbook of psychiatric care.

In this longer and very timely episode, Brighid, Pritma and I chatted about:

  • How Brighid and Pritma met at Yale School of Nursing (my alma mater) and exactly when they knew they wanted to pursue entrepreneurship.
  • Lavender’s origin story (and how they succeeded in founding their company in the midst of the pandemic last year).
  • Some of their BIGGEST challenges and wins over the last year.
  • Loneliness in entrepreneurship and tips for fostering more intentional relationships in your industry.
  • Pritma & Bridhid’s recommendations for nurses & NP’s who are interested in startups and becoming an entrepreneur.

And exciting news – Lavender is officially HIRING! Stick around until the end of this episode for all the details on who and what they’re looking for.
