None of what is happening at Bloom would be possible without the incredible team behind it. With our Meet the Team Series, we are introducing the individuals who are working hard to make all of this possible. Now it's time to meet your favorite member, Evie, our beloved baker, and oh yeah, Project Manager:
Where were you born and raised, Evie?
I was born in Seattle, WA, and have been here ever since!
What do you love most about Seattle?
I love the surrounding nature here – being able to travel for only an hour and be in the mountains, or on an island, is pretty great.
If you could move to any wine region which would it be and why?
Marlborough, New Zealand. I think wine from New Zealand is surprisingly underrated, and the scenery is absolutely gorgeous. One of my goals in life is to move down there and become a shepherd who makes small batch wines on the side.
What is your role at Bloom?
Can I only say one role? Primarily project manager, along with theme developer/customer support/baked goods provider.
Favorite part about working at Bloom?
Definitely the people. The ones in the office, and our clients.
What wine region is currently at the top of your bucket list?
The Rhone region of France!
Favorite wine & food pairing?
I love a Lambrusco, on the sweeter side, paired with a really spicy vindaloo curry. In the summer months though, I think there’s nothing better than a Mourvèdre Rosé with grilled peaches and mascarpone.
What books are you currently reading?
Well Mara and I have a Lord of the Rings book club in the office, so we’re currently reading through Appendix A of Book 3. On the side, I just picked up the Wheel of Time series and I’m really excited to start!
What, or who, are you a “closet” fan of?
Really cheesy, low budget sci fi movies. They’re never not entertaining.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
- Learn how to sail and go on a solo sailing trip through the Greek islands
- Hike to the Tiger’s Nest monastery in Bhutan
- Write an epic fantasy novel and publish it
OK quick answer!
