Vanessa Martinson is the new community manager at Assemble’s Minneapolis coworking space. We’re excited to have her as part of the team! We asked Vanessa a few questions to help you get to know her a little better.
I have always wanted a career that allows me to be social and involved in marketing and events. This position is the best of all three! After seeing the space and meeting the people I knew it was where I wanted to work every day and I have loved it ever since.
I was raised in Minnetonka, MN and now live in Uptown Minneapolis.
I enjoy hanging out with friends, watching Netflix, exploring new places and trying new food (and eating a lot of it).
I have many years of experience in the service industry that allows me to be very accommodating, working in recruiting allowed me to know all kinds of positions and companies as well as gain contacts in the Minneapolis area. I worked at a large event center previously as a marketing assistant as well assisting with all kinds of event planning from concerts and sporting events to expos and wedding receptions.
That’s a tough one! As I mentioned, I love food and am always trying new places. But my “go to” restaurants I get most frequently are probably Lake & Irving and Wakame (I LOVE sushi) both in Uptown.
