About The Elevate Community
What is Coworking?
Coworking represents a community of members who utilize shared resources, including technology, equipment, and meeting rooms. This arrangement offers advantages over traditional office setups, such as the flexibility of short-term commitments, the opportunity to engage with other professionals, and the convenience of all-inclusive amenities.
Elevate resources include Private Desks, Private Offices, Meeting and Conference Rooms, Training Space, Workspaces, Podcast Studio, Photography Studio, Busniess Center, Mail Collection, an onsite Receptionist, and more.
Non-Members may utilize our facilities by reservation, while Membership options are flexible and affordable, allowing our members the freedom to work away from the distractions at home yet free from the responsibilities of managing conventional office space.
Entrepreneurs and other Professionals who work remotely often find it difficult to maintain professionalism and productivity while working from home. Commonly, the ideal of working remotely becomes conflicted when work and family life begin to collide. Elevate Coworking provides the practical resource of a well-rounded business center away from home that may allow professionals to strike a healthy balance between work and home life.
Businesses that enjoy the financial benefit of operating without the overhead of a traditional "brick and mortar" office may utilize Elevate's meeting space and podcast studio as they conveniently book their team or client meetings through our app or online booking portal. While other businesses embrace the benefit of a private office, furnished to accommodate their team members, along with the inclusive amenities of this well-appointed business center.
Companies across the nation are realizing that many of their team members struggle with productivity and job satisfaction when remote work does not offer a reprieve from the home office. The balance of work and family life often creates personal conflict resulting in reduced productivity and low morale. Elevate works with companies of all sizes to offer flexible access for their personnel who may utilize the offices, meeting rooms, and other benefits of membership.
Hello, I'm Lori Zeller, founder and community manager of Elevate Coworking. I'm married to a selfless and loving guy who is not only instrumental in helping with our facilities behind the scenes, but he also serves our community as a Lieutenant with Tulsa Police Dept. We have 2 grown kids who sometimes work at Elevate as well. Though I'm the one who gets to take the credit, building and running this business has taken great support and encouragement from the entire family.
My background is in business administration and property management. I split the first decade of my career between management and accounting for larger companies, then a local Christ-based non-profit network. In 2004 I began a photography business that has grown to serve many Tulsa area families and businesses with fine art portraits and photography services. I began my journey into the coworking industry in 2019. The vision began to take shape as I considered the multitude of challenges that small business owners face, not the least of which is the management and financial burden of operating a traditional brick-and-mortar business. I imagined a community of professionals that could operate in a creative and inspirational environment, serving their clients in a professional space--not in their home or coffee shop--while reducing many of the challenges we face through collaboration. Ultimately, I realized that coworking was the solution I was looking for, and in 2020, OffiShare OK was officially born. Eventually, we became Elevate Coworking as we have continued to expand in many directions as a growing community of professionals.
The greatest joy in my business is to help people, facilitating their connections with the resources, inspiration, and relationships that inspire growth in their careers and/or businesses.
