THE TEAM

Julie Robbins, Co-founder and CFO

Julie has owned several businesses in varying fields, and is passionate about Holistic Business Coaching and helping local business owners succeed.

Even from South Carolina, Julie still keeps our books in order and the big ideas coming, while advocating for the New Paltz Community as a member of the Town Gown.

 

Julie is a mom of 3 boys, loves her hammock, and lives to travel.

Kristi Parnell, Operations Specialist

Kristi started out as a member, teaching cooking classes for kids, but she couldn't resist our charm! Now she dots our i's, crosses our t's, and keeps us in check! 

She has worked on Wall Street, as  a teacher, and as a nanny

(all skills that apply to her current role at EPIC).

Kristi enjoys yummy food, a good sour, playing games, and hanging out with her husband, 2 dachshunds, and 2 cats.

Melissa Common, Community Manager

Melissa recently graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a degree in Hospitality Management.  She interned with us at the end of 2020, and we just couldn't let her go!

 

She officially joined our team in early 2021, and has been keeping things in tip-top shape ever since. 

 

She enjoys photography, being outdoors, and helping others (and plays a mean game of Cards Against Humanity).

Nicole Langlois, Co-founder and CEO

Nicole homeschooled her 3 girls, spent 6 years in the Navy, traveled around the country in an RV for several years, and doesn’t like conformity.

She keeps our EPIC Community engaged and rarin' to go, and is always down for a cup of tea,

so stop by! 

(but please don't give her coffee)

Nicole likes to travel, hike, play poker, knit (never with a pattern), and cook (never with a recipe).

One EPIC Place is an affordable, collaborative workspace, providing local businesses a flexible location  and supportive community in which to grow their businesses/practices, no matter where they are in their growth cycle. We work with fledgling and established businesses, and we relish the opportunity to nurture a newly hatched idea and help see it to fruition.  

 

We offer shared workspaces, private offices, treatment rooms, workshop/conference rooms, a kitchen, studio, and a creative and engaging atmosphere all under one roof, providing flexible and endless opportunities for local entrepreneurs.

Our mission and vision have grown substantially from our initial small (and solo) location behind the former New Paltz Chamber of Commerce office.

Our purpose and place in this community is bigger than we anticipated, and we couldn't be happier! Our collective backgrounds, education, and experiences, paired with our strong desires to grow community and help people find and live their purposes, are what make up the foundation of One EPIC Place.
