Why did you become a member of YPC?
I became a member of YPC in December 2016 after attending a YPC Social Connect event. At WeWork, we're always looking to meet professionals and get to know organizations in Chicago therefore I saw YPC as an ideal group. In addition to providing beautiful offices and event spaces, WeWork helps individuals and companies make meaningful connections and use the power of community to grow their business. We're looking forward to collaborating with YPC on various events this year, starting in February! As a fairly new resident of Chicago, I'm excited to meet new people and be a part of a group of driven, social young professionals.
What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Chicago business community?
I think one of the major issues facing the Chicago business community is trying to develop solid relationships and stand out in such a large city during a time of economic uncertainty.
What is your favorite song?
I Wanna Dance with Somebody - Whitney Houston
What is your favorite activity to do in Chicago?
