Howdy, folks! We’re about to wrap up 2018 and wanted to share with you some of our Coworkers’ (and Gather staff’s!) 2018 highlights. We’ve got winners of Ugly Christmas Sweater Contests, we’ve got folks who have helped open up new restaurants and cideries, we’ve got folks who have made strides toward their fitness goals and we’ve got Gather staff who have been so proud to work with y’all all year-long. 2018 was great, 2019: Let’s Do This!

First job outside of my home state of Ohio, first time working in a co-working space. I seemed to be the only person who brought their own mug, and I’ve gotten a lot of comments on my choice of mugs. I got to relive my glory days of working in IT by fixing that damn printer several times. It’s pleasant to be in a place where a hedge fund manager, an engineer, and a graphic designer are sipping coffee at the beginning of the day, chit chatting and having fun Nathan Purcell & Lisa Min – The Rawr Agency
2018 Highlights: March: The Rawr Agency Opens Virginia Office at Gather Short Pump Lisa: Two Time Guest Appearance On The Stall Seat Journal & Winner of Gather Short Pump Christmas Ugly Sweater Contest Nathan: Stole the show on Flap Jack Friday by bringing a Double Flip Waffle Maker. #rainbowunicorn Caren Cowley – Gather
2018 was a marvelous year! I graduated from college (thank goodness!) and secured a job at the premiere Coworking space in Richmond, Gather! Here at Gather, I have met the most incredible people I would have never met in a traditional office space. Specifically, my fellow Community Manager EmmaLee! She has been such an amazing Coworker (pun intended) and a phenomenal human being, she has truly enhanced my life professionally and personally. I couldn’t have asked for a better first job or a better coworker, this year is one for the books! Angelica McIntosh – Key Personnel, Inc.
I finally took the plunge and lost 30 lbs back in the Spring. It’s definitely not easy, but the journey has been wonderful and eye-opening. If you’ve been putting something off this year, this is your sign to get out there and do it. Kevin Clay – Big Spoon Co.
It’s been exciting to be a part of Scott’s Addition’s growth in 2018. Big Spoon Co. helped three businesses open in the neighborhood so Gatherers now have new spots for dining and enjoying a happy hour. We opened Courthouse Creek Cider in June, Perch in September, and Virago Spirits in November. Since I started co-working in March, Gather has allowed me to make the most of my time as a food and beverage marketer. Ryan Holloway – PriceWaterhouseCoopers
2018 was a great year with big changes! My 17 month-old daughter, Evelyn, is walking and talking now my dog, Clementine, turned 7, and my wife, Anna, got a promotion. I made a career change to give me more time at home and work out of Gather everyday. I was honored to be voted as Mayor of Scott’s Addition Gather by myself. EmmaLee Gough – Gather
Gather made my year of 2018 one to remember! When I applied to Gather, I was looking for a job and ended up with a surprise bonus of a community and friendships that have made my time in Richmond so special! I’ve met so many interesting, intelligent, and fun people in my time here and every day is something different, yet something is always there to make me laugh. I’ll miss everybody I’ve met but consider Gather my home away from home in Richmond. Robin Green
As the owner of Sandler Training RVA I achieved Platinum status in the Sandler network. In just my second full year, and am among the top 20% of Sandler owners in the international network. James Crenshaw – Gather
Highlights of the year include having our first kid (Logan), getting to know all of the new Gather Community Managers, and opening Short Pump Gather!
