When did you start at Gateway Market?
What are your hobbies?
Crocheting/knitting, reading, brewing (and drinking) beer, home renovation projects and I run a small jewelry business through Etsy and through local art shows.
Why do you recommend people shop local?
It is so much more fun. Every time you come into a business that you frequent you get such a different experience in that store than from a big retailer. I have built some great relationships (and even friendships) with people who come into Gateway and trust that we know things that will interest them, new and cool products, and their old favorites if they can't remember. It is a much more personalized shopping environment.
What's your go-to drink of choice?
A new beer! I rarely drink the same things more than a couple of times because there is just so much going on in the beer world that the possibilities of a new favorite are endless. I also love wine, usually an earthy Pinot Noir, a fresh Chenin Blanc, or a bold Syrah. I dabble in Scotch and Irish whiskies when not drinking beer or wine, too.
What is one piece of advice you have for someone who is selecting beverages for a get-together?
Don't overthink it. You have a lot of palates to please, so finding options that are all-encompassing or will pair with the food as opposed to thinking what each individual will like is the best bet. For beer, having a good variety of a few styles usually does the trick. My favorite kind of get-togethers are when everyone brings something they enjoy to share — that's when you find new things that you may never have found on your own!
