Trista Kempa

Operations Leader


Hey, I'm Trista. 👋🏻 It's nice to meet you! I'm originally from outside of Detroit, but for the last 10 years, I've called Brooklyn home.

I started my career at wework, building the Operations and Community team and preparing for growth. I then joined as the 2nd employee at a new seed stage startup called Managed by Q, which was later acquired by wework. At Q, I established our customer experience and operations functions and then managed expansion into new markets. After Q, I joined another seed stage startup named Petal, where I currently work. I joined Petal as the 2nd employee and managed everything from the build of our Operations and Customer Experience foundation to now leading our Operations Strategy team. I'm passionate about scalable and efficient operations, leadership and management, customer experience and technology.
