Born and raised in Houston, Texas, I started working in the industry as a cocktail waitress at 19 and began bartending shortly after. Since then, I have had the pleasure of working alongside some of the best bartenders in the state, from Houston, to San Antonio, to Austin.

I can still remember the first time I walked into The Wheel four years ago. The lighting was dim, the record was spinning, I shook hands and introduced myself to my new coworkers, and then they immediately introduced me to the regulars sitting at the bar top. Everyone was so kind to me already, and I hadn't even poured them a drink yet! I ordered a Madison and sat on the patio with my dog and remember thinking that this was the bar I'd been searching for.

I was right. I've met some of the most amazing, kind, and loving people at this bar. I've laughed, cried, yelled, loved, been heart broken, and then patched up and made whole again by the family I've made at The Wheel. So if you happen to be in the neighborhood, drop in for a beer or a cocktail and come join the family!
