Why did you choose Hone Coworks as your next career move?
I chose Hone
Coworks as my next career move because I truly resonated with the corporate company value of raising the bar and striving for excellence, even in the trivial things. I love to be challenged and Hone Coworks seemed like it would be the best place to improve and grow my professional career

How will your past experiences translate to your success as the new Community Manager of Hone Coworks? My past experiences will translate into my success as the new Assistant Community Manager at Hone Coworks because of how I was raised. Growing up, I was encouraged to have an excellent work ethic, an eye for detail, and developed the ability to preemptively anticipate the needs of others. I tend to pay special attention to small details, which will be helpful in our efforts at Hone to remove all distractions from members. In addition to this, my past experiences have allowed me to develop good people skills and helped me to become a good communicator. 

What makes the Capital Region a great place to work and live? The Capital Region is a wonderful place to work and live because of its’ beautiful, natural surroundings. I have also found that the local community is very inspiring and being a member of it has helped me to learn and grow within myself. think my neighbors in Capital Region have helped provide me with clear vision of personal possibilities and options for career advancement.  

What’s one fun fact about yourself? One fun fact about me is that I would much rather live in a cabin next to a lake, surrounded by mountains, than live in the bustling city. 

Would you rather have all traffic lights you approach be green or never have to stand in line again? I would rather have all traffic lights I approach be green. 

Would you rather be able to see 10 minutes into your own future or 10 minutes into the future of anyone but yourself? I would rather see 10 minutes into the future of anyone but myself.
