What I enjoy about working for CU Boulder

I love watching our faculty, staff, students and alumni light up when they tell me about something they're working on that's making a difference in the world. Sharing their passion and hope for the future with audiences beyond the department is rewarding. 


I'm a CU Buff through and through, graduating from CU Boulder's Leeds School of Business with my BS in Business Administration and a minor in Technology, Arts and Media from Atlas Institute. Since then, I've had the pleasure of working as a venture analyst and innovation fellow at CU Anschutz Medical Campus where I interfaced with entrepreneurs seeking partnership with CU Anschutz, Children's Hospital Colorado and UCHealth. I've also engaged in marketing strategy and visioning work with CreatEdu, a design thinking consulting company that works with clients in education. I've worked for a digital marketing agency, have volunteered as a business consultant to entrepreneurs in developing regions of South Africa where I worked with a car mechanic and a cabinet maker, and have organized a job-readiness fair for those who are homeless. In my spare time, I enjoy being active outdoors (camping, hiking, cross-country skiing), playing violin, learning what makes people tick, exploring my family history and mentoring/leading a group of young adults through my church. 

Contact Oksana Schuppan

The best way to reach me is via email. I'm busiest in the weeks leading up to fall and spring graduation and in weeks leading up to CU's Engineering Projects Expo and other big events. This means my busy times are mid-November through mid-December and April through May.
