Who We Are
Jessica Lenz - Reservationist
Recently moved to Charlottesville after graduating from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania where she majored in communications and now becoming an expert at it. Growing up as a triplet, Jessica kept up with her brothers by throwing better spirals and always knowing the score of the Patriots game. Jessica is the youngest member of the Stay Charlottesville team, but she’s the glue that keeps the operation running. When she’s not keeping Travis in line, Jessica enjoys exploring her new home in Central Virginia, hanging with her niece and nephew and writing the next Twilight saga.
Katie Pennock - Operations Manager
Raised in the mountains of North Carolina, Katie moved to Charlottesville to go to the University of Virginia,where she majored in Political and Social Thought and tried unsuccessfully to shift her sports loyalties from the Tarheels to the Wahoos. Ten years later, she is still working on it, every football season gives us a chance give her the Orange and Blue blood. When not managing day-to-day operations at Stay Charlottesville, Katie indulges her international curiosity by hosting international students from UVA, traveling around the world, and frequenting Charlottesville's many excellent ethnic restaurants.
Andrea Hubbell - Architectural Photographer
A Charlottesville-based commercial photographer specializing in architectural, lifestyle, + culinary imagery. She started Andrea Hubbell Photography in 2010 and is the creator of Bella Eats, a food and recipe website started in 2008. Her education and experience in architectural design gives her an understanding of human interaction with space and an appreciation for composition and detail. Her goal is always to create an evocative representation of the places she photographs and to give the viewer the feeling that they are present in the scene. When not behind a camera, Andrea is busy cooking with her hubby, hiking with her dogs, and designing her parents a house in Florida.
Mallory Joyce - Event Sales Manager
A lover of impeccably styled events, Mallory is the Event Manager and Resident Stylist for Old Metropolitan Hall, Stay Charlottesville's premiere gathering space on the historic Downtown Mall. Growing up outside Chicago and in Virginia Beach, she later graduated from the University of Virginia with degrees in English Literature and Economics (an affection for books stuck; for excel spreadsheets, not so much). After spending some time curating art for a boutique gallery, writing for UVA's business school, and blogging, she quickly transitioned to coordinating and designing events. Whether she's styling an elegant wedding reception or executing a creative arts gala, Mallory's attention to detail and aesthetic acumen make her invaluable to Old Met. When not creating events, Mallory can be found traveling with her husband, blogging about style and life in Charlottesville, and testing new chocolate recipes.
Bill Chapman - CoFounder
A Charlottesville native who worked in the media business for 20 years after co-founding the local free weekly paper C-VILLE Weekly. In his spare time he pursues adaptive reuse projects in the local real estate arena. One day he will open his 27-room boutique inn in an old boarding house at UVA. In the meantime, he sails, cooks, and drives old cars to his kids' lacrosse games.
Travis Wilburn - CoFounder
A Virginia native, moved to Charlottesville in 2000 where he found a perfect marriage for his passion for buildings, music, and art. He began his real estate career in 2005 and in 2008 engaged in business development for a publishing group. An architect-at-heart without the ability to draw, he found himself drawn to the historic homes in Charlottesville and the Blue Ridge with no way to work with them. Solution: Stay Charlottesville. Travis brings his enthusiasm and passion to both the homes and C’Ville to work every day. True to his fun competitive nature, he will one day open a 28-room boutique inn, right next to Bill’s.
