Cat is an owner/manager, and grew up in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains of California. She loves adventure and travel, singing her heart out on stage, and overly competitive cards games with her friends. She loves serving the most amazing coffees to the Grapevine community, IPA’s, laughter and showing people that they are loved. Her favorite espresso drink is a delicious cortado.
I was raised in Fort Worth, but I consider Louisiana home. Now I’m proud to live and work in Grapevine! My Mom and Dad raised my brother and I to love and appreciate good coffee, and I always wanted to be a barista.
My husband and I have a third grader, a preschooler, and another on the way. We’re all bipartisan nerds from Star Trek to Star Wars, Dr. Who to Tolkein, DC to Marvel. Our home runs on imagination, hugs, good food, and Jesus. My hobbies are crochet, gardening, roasting coffee, and cooking. My favorite drinks at RE:defined are V60’s and cortados.
Being a barista isn’t just a job for me, it’s my vocation. I consider myself blessed and excited every day I walk into RE:defined. Spending my day with wonderful people serving wonderful coffee is a joy. I am abundantly happy to live this life.
I was born in Texas. I like community, traveling all and good food. Our Vanilla Latte is my favorite RE:defined drink, and I love that RE:defined feels like a home.
I am originally from Colorado (and I do miss the mountains a lot haha!)
My favorite part about Re:defined is the opportunity that just making a simple cup of coffee gives me to meet so many amazing people and have conversations with them. I love talking to guests, both new and regular. My favorite drink is by far the lavender latte; basically anything with lavender in it, I LOVE.
Outside of Re:defined, I enjoy anything outdoors (hiking, swimming, biking, running etc.), visiting new coffee shops, reading (Lord of the Rings are my favorite), learning about history (nerdy, I know) and traveling. Travel is the biggest passion I have. I’ve been to several countries, yet hope to visit more and live in another country someday (possibly in Northern Europe?)
