Employee Spotlight: Lura McCoy on the Marketplace Team

By Katy Mullet | 1 min read

We have an incredible team here at Gather — and we want you to meet them! Our Employee Spotlight series highlights different Gather team members so you can learn a little more about the team. 

Name: Lura McCoy (she/her)

What I Do At Gather: Marketplace Operations Associate

Where I Call Home: I live in Atlanta, GA.

So what brought you to Gather?

Before Gather, I was at General Assembly. I met a workshop teacher at General Assembly who was in the Marketing department.

Also, I chose Gather because there was a fridge stocked full of LaCroix – my kind of people!

How would you describe what you do in a few sentences?

I am working with both Gather and Eventup to help venues show off their space and make hosting events easier. I am also part of the Inclusion, Diversity and Equity committee which is a recent initiative to add to our workplace culture.

Prior to joining the Marketplace team, I was part of Gather’s Support team.

What do you like about working at Gather?

My teammates! It is always a great time working with my own team as well as cross-departmentally.

What’s the most challenging part of your job?

Keeping track of all the new updates on two platforms since we are innovating quickly.

What’s a fun fact about your team?

We are the only department at Gather to have our own espresso machine 🙂

What do you like to do outside of work?

I really like to travel to soccer matches (USWNT, NWSL, MLS)!

I'm the Content Marketing Manager here at Gather. Outside of writing and creating campaigns, I love to try new restaurants here in Atlanta or wherever I'm traveling.
