Women's Coworking Center 'Her Space' Opens In Palm Bluffs

When owner Kayla Pendleton first moved back to Fresno after a four month stint in San Diego, she missed the women-oriented workspace she had discovered down south.

After two years of hoping that someone else would open a similar space in Fresno, she decided to do it on her own. Now, she's opened up Fresno's first coworking space focused on female entrepreneurs, Her Space at 7543 N. Ingram Ave in Palm Bluffs.

Fresno’s Her Space provides work space, collaboration for women

For all of us that work the traditional 9 to 5 office job, there is some allure to the idea of working from home. However, answering emails in your PJs and having the freedom to go where you want, when you want, may not be good for long-term productivity and success.

Enter Her Space, a new co-working space that works sort of like a gym membership. You pay a monthly fee and have access to work space, plus the benefit of collaboration with other women.

"The idea in here is a grand feel, so we're going to have chandeliers in place of the current lights and a reception area where you can pick up your mail," said Kayla Pendleton.

"It's a place for ladies to get out of their homes and be around other like-minded ladies. We have a wonderful community built up before we even open," said Pendleton.

Member Spotlight: Her Space

Kayla Pendleton, the founder of Her Space, worked out of her home office for several years while telecommuting for her job in marketing. She quickly found that working from home was counterproductive. There were too many distractions and interruptions, plus it was tough to have a work/ life balance. She searched online, thinking she needed a private office. Then, she stumbled upon the concept of coworking.

Coworking spaces on the rise in Fresno

When Kayla Pendleton graduated college, she found herself moving to San Diego, where her first job involved her working remotely. It was a difficult setup for Pendleton.

“I was really kind of isolated, I didn’t know anyone and I was having trouble working from home in my new job,” she said. “It was a small team and I didn’t really have anyone to bounce ideas off of or anything.”

Her Space a hot spot for women in business

A coworking space in northern Fresno is quickly making a name for itself as a place where aspiring businesswomen can not only get work done, but also meet people and come up with new ideas.

Located at 7543 N. Ingram Ave., Her Space was the idea of Kayla Pendleton, who wanted to set up a more communal environment for women to work on projects and create avenues to collaborate with others.
