I had a blast talking about beer on live TV
on the First Coast Living show, July 15, 2016.
Check it out: here. Would love to do that again!
I kinda like talking about myself, but I'll spare you too many details. Let's just say that I've done a lot of things (some I'm even proud of). Like being one of only six Certified Cicerones (and the first female one) in the Jacksonville area (according to the roster on cicerone.org). As far as I can tell, I am the only Florida beer writer who's also a Certified Cicerone®. Only those who have passed the extensive Level 2 in-person exam may call themselves a "Certified Cicerone®" and use the trademark. (And, yes, I do get that question quite a bit.)

Over the years, I've realized that I really like (uh, love) craft beer and the craft beer community. Love travel and taking photos. Wherever I go, I find the beer!  Love sports, especially golf, football. I'm into the beach, sun, scuba, nature, and fun. PADI-Certified Advanced Open Water Scuba Diver. I love birds, birdwatching. Beach Bum, Gym Rat, Golf Nut, Sports Nut. I do 5Ks (mostly for the social thing). You'll see me wearing various color wigs during some events (yes, there are even pictures).  Find me hanging around breweries, bars, beerfests (I'm into beerfests). I'm really friendly, so stop and say Hi! What could happen?

No stranger to craft beer...been around the craft beer scene for years. Achieved Certified Cicerone® certification in 2015 (Level 2); obtained Cicerone® Certified Beer Server certification (Level 1) in 2013. Brewery experienced (don't know if that's a term, but I'm going with it). I've worked beer fests all around Florida. I keep up with what's going on with the Florida breweries and their beer, and, I'm always learning more!  Do I think I'm a beer "expert?" Nah, I leave that stuff to the other guys. 

Craft beer bartender. Certified bartender. Former exercise instructor (that explains some things ... WooHoo!), certified personal trainer, former teacher. Transplant to Florida from Chicago/Northwest Indiana area (and, yes, I've been to Three Floyds, although I visited on a trip from Florida). Love sports. Still a Chicago Bears and Chicago Blackhawks fan. Went to Super Bowl XLI; went to 2015 Stanley Cup Finals (twice; there's a blog post about that, too); have been to Augusta National for the Masters; regular at The Players. Went back to Chicago for Cubs NLCS Game 2 in October 2016 (well, also went to four Chicago breweries while I was there, too). Can't take the Chicago out of the girl.

HEY, YOU SHOULD HIRE ME! Here's my elevator pitch: Experienced trademark attorney (turned beergeek), with marketing and management background. Marketing certificate from Cornell. Background in restaurant and retail management, health club management/ sales. Former brand director/marketing rep/communications and media manager/social media nut/event planner and coordinator/manager/bartender/brewery rep at a local Florida craft brewery (*sigh* -- it was my life 24/7; sad story there; would love to do that again!). Tour guide on The Jax Brew Bus and formerly The Brew Bus-Jacksonville. I really know the Jax area breweries! And, I keep up with all things beer all over Florida. Seeking new opportunities; open to relocating anywhere near beer and a beach. Will work for beer and beer money. Yes, I can lift heavy things, I can pour beer, I've worked a bunch of beer fests, and I know how to use a POS system, keyboard and a smartphone. 

BEER IS MY TRADEMARK® 


Yeah, I like beer.... and,
I like talking beer 
few reviews from my tours: "thank you very much for an awesome ... tour. My father-in-law and brother-in-law from Colorado had a blast... You were a great guide and made it very fun!" ..... "Your beer knowledge is soooooo awesome; I could listen to you forever." ....   " ...[tour] was really cool with you and your knowledge, music, ..." Aw, thanks!  

Socializing (a lot) on Twitter and Instagram @BrewNymph. You should follow me for beer banter and more stuff you need to know -- or, just for fun. Also on Untappd, Google+, Facebook, Pinterest. I'm even on LinkedIn, because yes, it is possible to be professional and fun at the same time. 

Find me in North Florida: Jax, St. Augustine, with frequent sightings around Space Coast/Brevard; and, Daytona/Volusia, Gainesville, South Florida, Tampa, Southwest Florida, Tally .... Florida Somewhere... Where the Beer Meets the Beach® ... I'm fun; deal with it! ...
