RECESS OKC
A NOTE FROM THE OWNER
 P A I G E  M I T C H E L L 

Hi, I'm Paige, mom of two boys and founder at Recess OKC- a coworking space with on-site childcare in Automobile Alley. The past few years have been very challenging working from home while caring for my kids. I am so excited to offer a space in my community for other parents like me who are struggling to balance work and family.
I believe we can succeed in both without sacrificing quality time with our families. Recess offers a space for parents to work and children to play. You can follow us on Facebook & Instagram at @RecessOKC.

I love to shop at OKcollective Candle Co. for the best smelling candle!. I also love to shop at Shop Good, I am a T-shirt and sneakers kind of girl and the tees are always so cute and comfy.

Wheeze the Juice is my absolute favorite, I go almost every single day for a fresh juice or smoothie bowl. On cheat days I’m at Halls for The Smoke pizza, it's so good topped with smoked bbq chicken and mozzarella and cilantro, the combination is delicious.

I love to play at Factory Obscura! The lights, the colors, the art! It is my favorite place in Oklahoma- it’s just so magical, I feel like I slipped into wonderland each visit. The new Omni Hotel is also one of my new favorites, the service, the rooftop pool, and the view is breathtaking, best staycation ever!
