Being able to come into the spirits industry, which I knew nothing about, was super interesting. Then, seeing that there was really no diversity at the time, and especially there were no women in that industry, it really put me in a situation where I had to step back, take a deep breath and decide whether I wanted to continue on the journey of making a name for myself in a career within the spirits industry, or just do something else.
I wouldn’t have thought that I would be where I am, leading and being part of such an amazing brand, and directing a team of influencers across the country and really helping foster what that platform looks like. So it’s been a long journey, but I’m super proud of it and I am super proud of the industry itself, because I’ve seen the way that it’s changed. It’s really taken the time to look at the diversity and the powerful and impactful people that work within it, and the talent. So for me it’s been, it’s been really gratifying and I don’t believe that this is even half of it.
