Ashland, OR
Former competitive horseback rider turned full time student. I studied everything from equestrian science (yes that is actually a real bachelors degree) to musical theater, and finally landing on molecular biology. I graduated in 2012 and moved to Seattle with dreams of attending UW Medical School. I continued bartending in Seattle where I fell in love with the industry. Since then, I've committed full force to the world of hospitality and I have no plans on turning back. I've since moved to a small southern Oregon town to "pioneer" a contemporary cocktail scene where one has not existed before. I work at a bar located within the historic Winchester Inn, and on June 3rd, our new bar will be up and running! In my free time, I hike, swim, ride horses, paint, enjoy time with my puppers Marilyn, host dinner parties with my chef partner Dylan, and blog about cocktails and spirits.
