February’s member of the month is our favorite Scandinavian Travel Coordinator, Andrea Berkeland!


Scandinavia Specialist

What motivates you?

I am a huge planner, so making plans and following through on them is really motivating to me.  This also covers checking off all items on a checklist.

Why do you work out of a coworking space? And more importantly, why 100state?

When I moved from Minneapolis in August, I was really concerned that my first experience working remotely in a new city would be really isolating.  I knew I wouldn’t survive working from home!  So I googled around to find options and 100state seemed like the perfect place.  I made the right choice!

Who do you look at as a role model and why?

Ariana Grande because she licked a donut that one time.  At the time I didn’t understand why anyone cared and it seems that in the end, no one does care. She is on top of the world!

What is your favorite 100state memory?

Every Scotch-O’Clock!  It is great to hang around with other members after the work day on Fridays and enjoy a drink and chat.

What inspires you to keep pursuing your dream?

Right now I am having a hard time deciding what my “dream” path in life is.  As I try to figure that out I have been finding inspiration from political podcasts, reality TV, #vanlife videos on Youtube, and of course my enterprising coworkers at 100state!

When you’re not at 100state, where can you be found?

I live on the West Side by the University Hospital and can usually be found with my partner at Blue Moon for fries at night, and Oliver’s for brunch weekend mornings.
