As you may know, we put up a job posting several weeks ago for the very first paid position at Asmbly - Membership Coordinator. I’m excited to announce that we’ve filled the role and I can’t imagine finding anyone more perfect!
Lisa Edwards (@lisa) has been coming to Asmbly as a guest for over a year and has been admiring our transformation from a distance. She is a maker at heart starting with crochet at an early age, expanding to woodworking as a teen building enclosures for animals, and furniture refinishing in recent years with a special appreciation for marrying beauty with function. She recently started a YouTube channel - Your Hippie Sister Builds - and is embarking on a new career as a maker! Her passion for creating and sharing with others makes her a perfect fit for this role and we are thrilled to welcome her aboard for this historic moment in Asmbly history.
As Membership Coordinator, Lisa will be around onsite to help new members get acquainted in the space, guide members in our online systems, orient new members, and much more.
An important detail to note is that Lisa is now also a member at Asmbly, so you will often see her at the shop working on her own projects. You’ll know she’s on the clock as Membership Coordinator when you see her wearing her pink apron as shown in this picture. She’s an extremely friendly person and will be happy to chat and get to know everyone regardless of whether or not she’s on the clock, but please do show her respect as a fellow member and save your help requests for when she is working (she’ll be happy to let you know a good time if you ask ).
If you have any questions for Lisa, please post them here!
