Sophia Bonomi

Community Manager - The Ion
Howdy! My name is Sophia and I’m the Community Manager here at Common Desk - The Ion. Members here know me as “the woman of many hats!” I strive to make the Ion a place where everyone feels welcomed and empowered to tackle their day! My favorite moments are spent chatting with members while I make their favorite latte. While I’m not at Common Desk, you can find me thrift shopping around Montrose, running at Memorial Park, or sipping wine on a rooftop patio. Pop on over to the Ion and come say hi!

Wendy Melgar

Community Coordinator - The Ion
Hi! I'm Wendy, Community Coordinator for the Common Desk at the Ion. I am overjoyed to be a part of Houston's new business ecosystem in the coming years. When I'm not busy touring fantastic, ambitious people around Common Desk, you can find me donning my learning hat and pursuing my MBA at the University of Houston Downtown Marilyn Davies College of Business. Otherwise, I can be seen hiking with my three lovely daughters and husband on the outskirts of our lovely city. Come by and check out the ol' Sears building; I'll show you what they've done with the place, and the coffee's on me!

Tyanna Walker

Community Coordinator - The Ion
Hi y'all! I'm Tyanna, the Community Coordinator for The Ion. I love seeing members smiling faces, hearing their joyous stories, and ensuring they feel appreciated and respected in this space. In my free time you can find me traveling back to my home country of Jamaica, hanging out at a family gathering, or catching up on my favorite reality TV series. Stop by The Ion and experience the energy that makes this place so great!
