Becoming a barista 14 years ago was one of the best things that could've happened to me. I quickly fell in love with the atmosphere, serving the community, hand-crafting beverages and sharing that experience with my customers. Since my start as a barista, I've held many positions including trainer, supervisor, manager, educator, wholesale representative, and most recently a licensed AST. Each role has afforded me the various opportunities of serving the community.
As a Community Coordinator with the SCA, I would strive to advocate for the barista community. One of my goals as Community Coordinator would be to have education events more accessible for everyone. As the Founder of the ieTNT (Inland Empire TNT), I have the experience needed to organize such events.
