Getting Ready to launch

The West Valley’s 1st Co-Op and Co-Working Space for Women

For Immediate Release

(PHOENIX, AZ) The Glendale Airport Aviation Advisory Committee recently approved for StarshineAZ to open their co-op and co-working space for women inside the Glendale Airport terminal. 

“We are so pleased that the committee understood our concept and gave us the co-ahead,” stated Susan F. Moody, Starshine co-founder. “My business partner, Leeanne Gardner, and I are committed to creating this space for women in the West Valley and the Glendale Airport was our 1st choice.”

Not only is the Glendale Airport in the heart of the West Valley, but the building offers a quiet nurturing atmosphere, has access to a large training room and room for expansion. “The best part,” according to Leeanne, “is that that there is a restaurant on site. Why go to Starbucks when you can come to Starshine?!” she quips.

StarshineAZ inspires, supports and mentors women business owners who find their passion and their purpose through their company and provides them with the Systems, Training, Advice and Resources so they can achieve greater success in their business and happiness in their life.


“Let’s face facts,” says Moody, “women grow their businesses differently than men. While men thrive in a competitive environment, women prefer a cooperative atmosphere. While men like to work individually; women prefer to work collectively.” Opening this May, StarshineAZ will be offering a collaborative co-working space and co-op for women entrepreneurs.
