Where to find her: Flying Saucer Draught Emporium
Specialty: “The Lava Lamp is my signature drink. It includes a hefeweizen (wheat beer) layered with a nitro stout -- usually Guinness -- with some Lindemans Framboise dropped in, giving it the appearance of a lava lamp. I also love IPAs, and help my regulars find the perfect beer for them based on their mood, the weather, and what kind of flavors they are looking for.”
Background: “I’m from Corpus Christi, and graduated from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi with a bachelor’s in business. I moved to SA in 2010 and fell in love with the city, the people, and the relaxed vibe.”
What she’s doing when she’s off the clock: “I’m an avid reader, love hanging out with my husband and our dogs -- Tess and Chalupa Batman -- and my guinea pig, Sancho. I also love checking out the craft beer scene around town.”
What she loves about SA: “I love everything about San Antonio! It is an amazingly big city with a small-town feel. There is always something new and different to do/see/try here -- plays and musicals at the Majestic Theatre, listening to live music -- especially dueling pianos. This is a one-in-a-million city.”
