My name is Savannah and I have recently taken on the position of receptionist and social media manager for Catalyst Co-Working in Ellensburg!
When I took on this position I didn't exactly have a clear idea on what co-working was; however, after a few days I was able to understand how beneficial this work setting can be.
Currently in our office space are four amazing and unique individuals who all have completely different career paths. I find it fascinating to listen to the things they are working on. Getting to know each person's backstory is quite intriguing. Working with a group of people in a wide age range is refreshing to me as I love to work with people who are older than myself. The tenants here have been nothing but gracious to me and I hope to pass on the same kindness when I am working with a younger generation.
Although our office space is not nearly as busy and bustling as one in Seattle, we still have a lot of foot traffic. Our conference room is booked by a large range of businesses and I always enjoy the chance to see new faces. As a tourism management major, I love to get to know the companies and people in the area. Being the receptionist in a place that can host large meetings gives me the perfect opportunity to do so. Also, having our building as a location for Ellensburg's First Friday Art Walks allows me to meet some of the local talent!
Overall, my experience at Catalyst Co-Working has led me to understand that co-working is a very unique and creative way to meet new people outside of your field while still doing the work that you love. If I ever move to a city that has co-working offices and I am in need of a place to work, I will not hesitate to sign up!
