Kay is a Project Coordinator and Community Manager at CO+HOOTS in downtown Phoenix, AZ. She's also a word magician and lover of all things Phoenix. She was introduced to the coworking scene while writing a story about CO+HOOTS and has been passionate about its growth ever since. She has coordinated 24-hour hackathons for students learning to code, 24-hour create-a-thons where creatives build teams to revamp a nonprofit's website and strategy, startup competitions, and meetups for women in the startup community. She's freakishly passionate about culture and community- namely in how to build it and retain it. Community outreach, event organization and culture building is the name of her game.
