Kira Gehle

A Lafayette native, Kira has been in love with the small and friendly town since she was a kid. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado and was working for a handful of companies when she wandered into Confluence one day, not knowing what coworking even was. A couple weeks later she started her position as Community Manager and is now approaching almost 2 years in coworking!

Recently, she has had the pleasure of becoming part-time Community Manager at new flexible workspace opening soon in Broomfield called Work at 26. She is excited to take part in the development and growth of this great resource, and looks forward to helping it become a key part of the city community.

When Kira is not at Confluence or Work at 26, she is working on freelance graphic design work, reading, or playing trivia at a local brewery with friends. Kira enjoys connecting with members and looks forward to getting to know the wonderful individuals in the coworking community .

Kristin Hardie

Kristin spent much of her childhood in Anchorage, Alaska before attending the University of Denver for college and graduate school. She works with strategic data developing online GIS mapping tools and analyses for her employer while pursuing interests in fitness, snow sports, and outdoor recreation. Kristin is glad to get out of the basement. In addition to holding down her day-job, she helps with all aspects of Confluence operations and tasks du jour.

Tom and Kristin have two active daughters, two dogs, and possibly too much on their plate much of the time, but they're thrilled to be engaged with their community and look forward to growing with ConfluenceSBC.
