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!

Community Associate - The Ion

Hi! I’m Wendy, Community Associate 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!
