  • Moved to Portland in 2013.

  • Been a food person since single digits. At age six at a French fine dining restaurant ordered duck confit as an appetizer followed by duck a l’orange.

  • Has been at LGP since 2011 (the OG pickle!).

  • Grew up near Seattle and attended University of Portland.

  • Excited by detailed plans and event logistics (Floorplans? A color-coded run of show? *swoon*).

  • Always wants to order the tartare and chicken liver mousse.

  • Studied in Salzburg, Austria for a year and fell in love with wearing Dirndls.

  • Spent a lot of time at camp as a child (day camp, Girl Scout camp, llama camp, kayak camp...) and feels her most zen in a PNW forest  .

  • Always up for a Game Night or to binge watch an epic series (Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Battlestar Galactica, Lord of the Rings...).

  • Go-to drinks: Whiskey Ginger or a funky farmhouse ale.
