As the Tequila goddess, I give guests an unforgettable experience on the knowledge and history of tequila. My favorite part is seeing their face light up when discovering a new tequila they have fallen in love with. Each guest has a special memory to take home. La Hacienda is all about the guest experience and I am honored to be a part of that. I grew up taking family vacations to Mexico where I learned a lot about the culture. To this day, it is one of my favorite places to visit to brush up on my knowledge of the spirit!

Being from Buffalo, NY my tequila options were pretty limited. Things have changed since then! I moved to Arizona and quickly acclimated to the warm weather and all the spirits that go with it. After starting at La Hacienda as a bartender, I have had my eyes opened to the world of Tequila. Since becoming a Tequila Goddess I have traveled to Mexico and had the opportunity to tour the Don Julio distillery, instantly immersed in the traditions and culture of the country. I even got to pick our own exclusive barrel of tequila for La Hacienda. I studied hard and became certified by the CRT. It is my goal to bring the passion, history and culture of tequila to every tequila tasting. It is a pleasure to help tequila beginners as well as tequila aficionados find the perfect pour. I know now that there is a tequila for every person, every mood and every occasion. As Don Julio once said - "The best way to drink tequila is not alone.
