Response No. 3 – Meghan Oakley-Henning AmeriCorps Program Director at Pennsylvania Campus Compact
What do you love about coworking? I worked from home for 3 years, and looking back, I was not a happy person. At the Candy Factory, I get dressed in the morning, see other people (who are also working!), separate work and home, and feel like I am a part of a community. It sounds counterintiative, but at the Candy Factory, I feel more connected to people, but also get more done than ever before… I wake up excited for my day, the time flies by, and then I have trouble leaving (in a good way). I have even recruited my husband to come too! Favorite Candy? Peanut M&Ms 🙂 What do you do in 25 words or less: I direct two AmeriCorps programs for a state-wide organization of colleges committed to increasing student civic engagement and being better stewards of community resources.
