Tell us about what you do
I’m the Regional Membership Manager for Cities Without Houses.

How did you get here?
I started off as a club receptionist opening Soho House Chicago. We opened during Lollapalooza, which was an interesting experience. However, opening a house gave me the skills that led me to have multiple task force opportunities, become a member relations manager, and now move to the CWH team. Staying engaged with internal opportunities at Soho House Chicago really educated and prepared me for future management roles.

Favourite food?
French fries. But not crinkle cut; they can’t be trusted. 

Favourite drink?
Anything with bubbles. From water to wine to cocktails. 

Who do you admire the most?
My previous boss and friend Ifeoma Ojukwu. I met her in Chicago, and she really taught me a lot about patience and empathy. They’re two skills that have been incredibly valuable throughout my career with Soho House. 

What’s your biggest achievement?
Personally, moving to Chicago straight after university from my hometown, Las Vegas. I didn’t know anyone or have a job lined up. I’d heard about Soho House from friends in LA, so I googled Soho House Chicago out of curiosity. Thank goodness I did, or I wouldn’t be here today. Professionally, I’d say that the programming I created with the Soho House clubs and Kiki Corner were my biggest achievements. It has been my greatest joy seeing how greatly those two programmes have positively impacted members.  

And your biggest learning?
Asking for help. I am a yes person; I want to do everything, be involved in everything, and lead everything. Asking for help can enable you to produce higher quality work and prevent burnout. It’s also a great way to give other people on your team the opportunity to show their strengths and gain more experience. Teamwork makes the dream work, right? 

Favourite thing about working for Soho House?
My colleagues. I’ve never worked with such amazing folks. Pure hearts, all of them.
