Emily was born and raised in Montana, and after moving to Istanbul and then Denver, she ended up in Redding in 2008. After nearly a decade in the world of architecture, she’s decided to throw herself off the metaphorical cliff to figure out her true passion in life. She enjoys travel, backpacking, ballet and playing outside. She started as a long time FRBC patron on the ‘other’ side of the bar and then bartended many years at the Cypress Taphouse before becoming a bartender at the Eastside Brewery. Her go-to beer in the lineup is the Hexagenia IPA.
