Lives Radio Show & Podcast – Naomi Hattaway

Naomi Hattaway is passionate about community building and empowering others to thrive, not just survive, in the places they call home. In this show, we talk about identifying as bi-racial, homeschooling, housing access and poverty, being a teenage mom, living in the third world, and being inspired to serve the community's betterment.

Born and raised in a small town in rural Nebraska, Naomi moved with family to Omaha and since then has taken her own family to live in places like India and Singapore. Her life experiences have catalyzed Naomi's passion about community building and empowering others to thrive, not just survive, in the places they call home. She ran recently for City Council in Omaha, with a bid to represent District 6, the central section of West Omaha. Her next venture continues her work in affordable housing, this time on a larger scale, that will impact all of Greater Omaha with development, policy and advocacy, and a strong focus on ending homelessness.

Born in sight of England’s Canterbury Cathedral, I’ve called the American Midwest home since 2004. Formerly a London lawyer and an Omaha brand consultant, since 2016 I have dedicated 100% of my time and efforts to Squishtalks, a conversation catalyst I started in 2010. Squishtalks has collaborated with numerous community groups and businesses.

Believing in conversation’s power to connect, in 2015 I undertook the community project “a couple of 830 mile long conversations,” adventuring in an RV for four weeks along side roads and among small towns to talk with Nebraskans, discovering the lives, cultures and stories of people I met. Currently I am engaged in “Stories from the Redline” in collaboration with The Union for Contemporary Art’s exhibition exploring the pernicious human impact of redline housing policies.

In addition, I cofounded the creativity agency Gilbert+Chittenden in 2017, collaborating with creativity expert Dan Gilbert using design thinking to help individuals and organizations creatively realize their best futures.

I hope you'll join me in listening to the compelling stories from my fascinating guests on Lives Radio Show & Podcast.
