As the Chief Community Officer of NextSpace, I helped grow the company from an idea to nine locations – and counting. My primary role was to communicate and instill the organization’s culture in each new location. My guidance helped the staff develop vibrant communities, push the definition of collaboration, and convey the culture to visitors and prospective new employees. As part of an amazing team, I helped build NextSpace Coworking into one of the most successful coworking companies in the world. Along the way, I co-founded the two coworking industry associations, LExC and COSHARE, and co-developed industry specific events including leading the unconference at GCUC for two years.

Expertise includes: Coworking Staff, Community and Facilities Management; Driving Growth with Strategic Community Building
