Cultural Producer, Community Organizer, Entrepreneur

Five Words About Me:

Bold, tenacious, resolute, deep-diver, instigator

One Surprising Skill:

I’ve performed professionally as a fire artist all over the Southeast – a flaming hula hoop is my tool of choice!

A proud hillbilly and East Tennessee native, I put down roots in Berea, Kentucky in 2013 and have been working to build a nightlife ever since. I am the founder and director of First Friday Berea, producing free outdoor live music events since 2014. I own Peg + Awl Public House, co-own a music venue, Rebel Rebel Studio & Lounge, and am constantly scheming ways to enliven our small city, particularly with other creative women business owners. I steward the growth of three amazing humans with my partner, Brett, love to ride my bike, and receive an enormous amount of joy from our 4 dogs.
