Independent professionals work better together than they do alone! Bring your laptop, grab a comfortable desk, and get to work. High-speed Wi-Fi, wireless printing, meeting rooms with large monitors, and fresh organic fair trade coffee are all part of the deal.  AND membership is more than just a desk or a meeting room. Just ask one of our friendly ambassadors at the front desk for a referral or a resource, and you'll quickly see this is a place where one can grow professionally as well.

Since opening in 2011, OfficeXpats has been dedicated to supporting the independent professionals and business community of Bainbridge Island, offering shared office resources and learning events that create a welcoming space and a guiding hand for connection and inspiration. OfficeXpats was awarded the 2014 Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award for service to the community!

I am a marketing and communications specialist with a history of building community. I've worked with start-ups and software giants offering messaging, marketing collateral, and training development.

What do I love about OfficeXpats?

I love watching people start to have "ownership" in our space and in the community, noting the little things they just start doing to make the place work better.
