Hosted By Katie Maxwell, Memphis Chapter Director
Katie Maxwell worked in the corporate world for the past 8 years specializing in marketing, communications and public relations. Due to a company wide restructuring her position was eliminated in early 2013. Unsure of what she wanted to do next, Katie spent several months working with a team to start a coworking space in Memphis, TN. In just a few months, the lease was signed, renovations completed and Cowork Memphis came on the scene. She now serves as the Director of Community Relations at Cowork Memphis.
