We knew instantly when we met Kaila the first time that she was made for the role of Community Manager at The Org. Kaila is a natural born public speaker and community builder. With a past from sales enablement and training in hyper growth startups facilitating connection have become an almost native skill for Kaila.
I her own words: "It’s my job to help create strong connection internally and bring The Org brand to life externally. My official title is Community Manager but I don’t like the word manager because you don’t manage a community - you build it, grow it, nurture it, and make it better. "
Kaila is excited for especially 2 of our values here at The Org: she looks forwards to being a contrarian and practicing hygge. You can read more about us here. She elaborates: "Humans were intended to commune. We’ve done since our earliest days as hunters and gatherers. I believe in a workplace that comes together not just because we’re on the same payroll but because we genuinely enjoy the unique energy and vibe each of us brings. "
Her previous role at Procore, she got to host monthly Sales All Hands and get on the stage in front of the Revenue Teams as they celebrated milestones and shared targets.
At CreatorIQ, she was lucky to wear different hats. One of them being the host of the Weekly Company All Hands. When they went full remote, she decided to help facilitate this call by channeling her vlogging skills to Zoom style moderating.
She lived in Seoul while working New York hours for CreatorIQ (yes, leading All Hands with high energy at 2am KST) and during day time, she volunteered with Seoul Startups. A diverse community of native and expat entrepreneurs, investors, artists, designers all interested in learning. It felt natural for her to gather them for coffee meetups or weekend morning hikes. It was volunteering for Seoul Startups that affirmed her wanted to make building community more of her life’s work.
On her bio page at The Org you will find a couple of fun facts:
- She can fit everything she own into 2 suitcases
- She is half Korean, half Native American (Pueblo of Acoma and Navajo)
- She love mangoes. The best ones she have ever eaten were in Mexico and Kenya.
Welcome to the team Kaila! In your short time here you have already made an incredible impression. We cant wait for all the great moments we will create together.
