Ballast Point Brewing and Spirits

I began my career at Ballast Point running and bussing tables. When the opportunity presented itself, I took charge of our retail operations here at Little Italy. I now receive and record all merchandise transfers, and perform weekly audits as well as month end inventory. Building displays with new merchandise in an eye catching and enticing way is an exciting challenge for me. I take every opportunity to tell a story about the brand and create new customers for life.  Excellent communication with our retail crew and managers has been a welcome challenge.
