Catalyst Ranch, Chicago’s most creative meeting venue, is staffed by a incredible team of quirky characters known as Ranch Hands. Creative individuals are drawn to Catalyst Ranch’s colorful workspace, diverse clientele, and co-workers of similar sensibility. Ranch Hand Spotlight is an occasional blog series that invites you to take a sneak peek behind the scenes at the Ranch. Meet the fine folks who work together to anticipate and accommodate our clients’ every need from copies to catering! See what they do here at the Ranch and the ways they use their talents in endeavors outside the Ranch!
Today’s Spotlight focuses on Taylor Sommers!
As our Executive Administrative Assistant, it is likely that Taylor will be the first friendly face you encounter upon arriving at the Ranch. She is creative, friendly, patient, and smart, and I’m starting to suspect she is also some kind of superhero wizard who can not only master our beloved, albeit confusing, copy machine, make a personalized birthday card, and design a film set all at once!
