The theme of 110th International Women’s Day encourages people to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. While relevant across the globe, we feel this theme is particularly apropos for craft alcohol as the industry continues to reckon with its treatment of women and other communities.

While every day is an opportunity to showcase our crew, for this global event we wanted to take the time to highlight some of the remarkable townies moving mountains in the ciderhouse and across the industry!

Moving to Oregon on a whim to further my education and dive deep into the beverage industry.

If you could work anywhere else in the company, what position would it be?

Iā€™m going to make it to the top one day. Iā€™m working on finishing another degree to fortify my experience and education. If I had the right connections I would say national sales manager. I would also gladly take any role on the admin team where I could use my knowledge base and problem solving skills to grow the company.

Idaho/Montana Sales Rep (5 years)

What do you do for the company?

I am a sales rep based in Idaho, covering all of Idaho and Montana. My day-to-day consists of account support, gaining new distribution at accounts, helping launch new items and interacting with our distributor in this area!

My overall goal as a rep is to help grow 2 Towns and our brands in these two states. I am the point of contact for our distributor and customers whenever they have any 2 Towns related questions or concerns. I have lived in the Boise area since September of 2019, previously I was a 2 Towns rep covering the Willamette Valley and Southern Oregon.

I started as a part-time local distribution rep in the summer of 2015 and was hired back on in January 2016. Haven’t looked back since šŸ™‚

Biggest personal achievement is building a life with my husband Bob! We are loving living in Idaho and have been partners since the Fall of 2014. My proudest professional achievement is working for 2 Towns for over 5 years!

If you could work anywhere else in the company, what position would it be?

I have always loved the environment of our tasting room, our awesome crew there is the main reason! I bartended for a time before joining 2 Towns, and loved the interaction you get with customers. Thankfully I get my small doses of that at tastings and events. I would also enjoy working on the production team, we have a great crew there too!
