How long have you worked at Oskar Blues?
almost 10 years

And what do you do here?

I have worn many hats at OB from waitress to bartender, to keg washer and gravity checker (in Lyons) to most currently,Colorado Sales Merchandiser. My current position is by far the best, since I now have fancy business cards :) I am essentially sales support. I do whatever I can to help the sales team. I work promotional events to educate consumers and get people excited about the OB brand! Since I have worked with OB for so long it is easy to share the Oskar Blues story and get people involved.

How about when you're not working?

I love any and all things creative and handmade. I love being in an artistic environment looking at artwork as well as creating it. I am also a huge fan of the outdoors, in the winter you can find me on the slopes if I am not already in the bar for an apres-ski beer.

Music. Who's your favorite band?
I get made fun of a lot for this but I love Dave Matthews Band. I like his varying style and narrative lyrics.

How about your first bike?
The first bike I can remember was of course hot pink with super 90's black paint splatters on it. White tires. It was awesome! Pretty much the 90's in a snapshot.

Perhaps most importantly, what is your favorite Oskar Blues beer?
Deviant Dales

Anything we forgot to ask?

hmmm.... maybe where are you originally from? I know a lot of people that work for OB are NOT originally from Colorado

I'm from Michigan, FYI.

Do you speak any other languages? No

Do you have any tricks, hidden talents, secrets or anything randomly interesting?

I learned how to tie my shoes (punky brewster high tops with sparkly laces) in a dream when I was 3, woke up, knew how and never looked back to velcro again!
