Member of the Month: Nick Goodale, Tallgrass Management Group

Our July Member of the Month is one of our newer members, although it feels like he has been a part of our family for years now. Meet Nick Goodale, Operations Manager for Tallgrass Management Group. Tallgrass was founded in 2016 and is backed by over 25 years of local real estate experience. They have quickly become a housing provider of choice across the Tulsa area. Get to know Nick a little better by checking out our Q&A with him below.

How do you prefer to start your workday?

I like to spend the first part of my day with coffee and emails. 

What’s something that has surprised you about your chosen career path?

I never had a set career path goal, but after being in the real estate/rental market for 5 years my outlook on investments and future market conditions was broadened beyond belief.

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?

Getting to bed earlier! Downtime is usually late evenings after the kids go to bed but it’s a vicious cycle if you’re not careful. 

Do you prefer being  active or relaxing during your free time?

I prefer being active.  I enjoy all sports and outdoor activities. I am always open to trying something new, at least once. 

Are you a dog person or a cat person (or neither)?

Dogs all day.  

What book are you reading now/What show are you binging?

My books are boring work books but I am binging “Billions” right now. 

What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking?

The atmosphere of so many diverse companies and entrepreneurs all collaborating and working to build a better Tulsa (plus the coffee & beer is pretty good).

She was one of the top 10 seniors her year at OSU and a competitive runner post-grad. Speaking of OSU, Jenna is the biggest college football fan in the space; you can bet on it. Now, she’s on her next trip around the sun leading VAST Media and expecting another sweet baby. She really does it all!

Member of the Month: Robin Walters, Rogue Recruitment

Business Owner, Managing Partner, Feminist, Mother, Military Wife, Dog-lover, Non-profit Starter, Craft Beer Queen of The Root. Robin Walters is now adding another title to her ever-growing list: November Member of the Month! Robin started her own staffing company in 2018 called Rogue Recruitment. One of the cool things about Robin is that you can talk to her about almost any subject because she just knows a little bit about a lot of different things. We love having Robin and her team here at The Root—if you wanna meet her, you can just stop by the front desk on pastry-delivery day (Tuesday mornings).
