    My favorite Minneapolis neighborhood:

    Uptown and Northeast, hands down. They are so fun and vibrant! Plus, good food and beer are easily found in both.

    How I describe my job at COCO:

    My job varies by the day here at CoCo! One day you might find me running around CoCo Downtown and the next you could find me hosting an event in the Garage in Uptown. My main goal is to help members and guests feel welcome in our space and forge meaningful connections.

    To be able to pause time. There are never enough hours in the day!

    How I describe my job at COCO:

    I am the Community Manager at a Coworking and Collaboration Space called COCO. It’s an incredible place for people of all walks of life to come be successful at their work, while networking and getting to be part of a community of dreamers and do-ers. Its a great place for entrepreneurs, those who don’t have an office, or those who simply want a different environment!

    If I could have one superpower:

    Fly, or freeze time.
