My name is Angelica Purcell, Sales Manager for Orchard Workspace by JLL in Downtown Brooklyn. I’ve been with JLL for a little over 2 years but come with 6+ years’ Sales experience in the Flex Space Industry. I consider myself a very ambitious and outgoing individual who seeks extensive adventure in everything!
What I love about Flex is that we have a solution for everyone, no matter how big or small your company may be. I also love the sense of community that it creates amongst its members and how it can drive anyone’s professional life around the precepts of meaningful relationships, personal growth, and the greater good.
My name is Hillary Bernal, Community Manager for Orchard Workspace by JLL in Downtown Brooklyn. During my one-year journey with Flex by JLL, I have not only gained profound insights into the Flex space industry, but transformative personal growth as well! Witnessing the simultaneous evolution of both the industry and myself has been a rewarding experience that fuels my passion for continuous growth and development. What I love about Flex is the influx of diverse individuals I have the privilege to connect and engage with on a daily basis, whether it be through community events or through meaningful small-scale interactions!
My name is May Wojt, Office Coordinator at Orchard Workspace by JLL in Downtown Brooklyn. I have been with the company for eight months, and I am passionate about fostering a nurturing and joyful work environment for myself and my colleagues.

Hello! My name is Jon Curtiss, and I am the Center Manager of Orchard Workspace by JLL, Seattle. August of 2023 will complete my first year with JLL, and I have over 7 years of flex space and coworking sales and management experience. Originally from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I have found a home here in Seattle where I’m able to enjoy the conveniences of a bustling and dynamic city, with unrivaled proximity to the stunning PNW outdoor environments where I recreate in my free time. Flex space is the answer to the hybrid workspace solution businesses are seeking today, and I’m thrilled to be able to support our members while fostering a community of diverse and driven professionals.
I’m Megan Fisher, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Orchard Workspace Team here in Seattle. I moved from Los Angeles in 2023 and while I’ll miss the beaches, I’m excited to explore the nature and outdoor activities the Pacific Northwest has to offer. In my free time, you can find me hiking, thrifting, or out with friends. I’m also a big foodie, so if you have any favorite recipes, send them my way!
