HI, my name is Beth Lestingi and I work as a Visitologist at Amata, overseeing the operations for two of our locations in Chicago. I’ve been working in the co-working environment for the past 15 years and at Amata for the last 6 years. It’s easy getting up each morning because I truly love what I do. I spend most of my day working with wonderful clients, sharing fun stories and helping them in their business.
For the past 10 years I have lived in Ukrainian Village and before that I spent 5 years living in River West, so it’s safe to say living in Chicago suits me well; especially the social scene in Ukrainian Village. In case you are wondering, I grew up in Cincinnati, but I consider myself a Chicagoan these days.
I think one of my favorite past times is enjoying a glass or two of wine on my back deck with my puppy and watching the pickers search the garbage cans for their newest treasure. I guess it’s true that one person’s junk, really is another’s treasure.
I am a bit of a workout nut and love the East Bank Club. Oh, and if I am going to spill all the beans, I love buying new coats and shoes; after all, I do live in Chicago!
