Our July Member of the Month is Sammy Pardes!   Sammy has been a 100state member for almost one year now and is always up to engage and have fun with other members of the community.  Read more about Sammy, our small but mighty star member, below!

Digital Producer, MLB

What motivates you?
The work I do is a representation of myself. I always want to put my best foot forward and therefore, output my best work.

Why do you work out of a co-working space? And more importantly, why 100state?
I moved to Madison knowing only two other people in the state of Wisconsin. Shortly after moving to Madison, I realized it’s super boring to work from home all the time! I began looking for a productive, yet social environment where I could get to know the Madison community better and I’ve certainly found that in 100State!

Who do you look at as a role model and why?
I look up to Katelyn Ohashi because of her tenacity and strength as an athlete and as an advocate for women in the USAG community. I also admire her kick-ass floor routines!

What is your favorite 100state memory?
Coming in first place at trivia night!!

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an Olympic gymnast or a dolphin trainer.

When you’re not at 100state, where can you be found?
You can find me in the Omni Fight Club gym most weekday evenings.
