We love taking care of the people who take care of everyone in the office - the amazing folks we call administrative professionals.
This month, we’re featuring the winner of our Administrative Professionals Week contest, Chelsea Lancaster, the office manager who supports the members of NedSpace, an awesome coworking space in downtown Portland, Oregon. To celebrate her, we delivered a custom ClientJoy gift box filled with Portland made deliciousness to her desk. She also received a monthly subscription to Very Portland for a year!
We could gush about how much we adore Chelsea, but we think her colleagues do it best! Check out the wonderful words of appreciation the companies at NedSpace shared with us.
When you finish reading their compliments, take a second to nominate a person to be our next Admin of the Month!

She is a one-of-a-kind office manager, for sure.” -Jordyn Barton
“For every office space event we have, Chelsea is the number one advocate getting everyone notified and involved.

She is always doing fun things in the office to get everyone networking and bonding. Despite having so many companies in this office, we all feel as though we are one big family.
