Kelly Grant was selected as one of our 'Most Inspiring Women of Alexandria' back in February. More importantly, she was recently named Business Philanthropist of the Year by Volunteer Alexandria!

(We don't mean to brag or anything but... Here at VIP... we sure know how to pick em'! Right?)

But enough about us. Let's talk about Kelly! Actually... we'll let her do the talking...

'As a partner at ALX Community Coworking, it is important to me that we offer far more than flexible office space. We intentionally chose to include community as part of our name; giving back and striving to make Alexandria a better place will always be at the heart of our mission. I am incredibly honored to be named Business Philanthropist of the Year. The team at ALX Community, our members and the incredible people of Alexandria made this recognition a reality. #thenewoldtown' - Kelly Grant

Congratulations, Kel! We are SO proud of you! Big things are coming this way and we are so excited to be supporting you through it all!
