MCBC Community Sponsor Dana Williams’ Community Spotlight Series

Dana Williams, MCBC member, sponsor (Your Partner in Real Estate) and owner of AchievePTC cycle coaching, has created a Community Spotlight series. The first features MCBC sponsor and cyclist Helen Russell, co-founder of Equator Coffees. Here’s a message from Dana on the series, with a link to the video below.






Living and working in Mill Valley and Marin County, I have been inspired by the resiliency of so many people. This video series is meant to showcase community members who graciously contribute and serve others and share a common belief of ‘supporting local community’ to make Mill Valley and Marin County the special place that it is.

Episode 1 features Equator Coffees Co-Founder, and Mill Valley resident, Helen Russell. She has been supportive in so many ways, including putting her trust in me to help sell her previous home and buy her current one. Equator Coffees is her baby, and one that is an integral part of many communities in Marin.

Check out Dana’s interview with Helen as she shares her story about biking and business in Marin.
