Host of We Are B&B, Storytime, Coffee School, Beer School, Wine School

Kelsey has been working at Books & Brews since the summer of 2015 and was a regular before that.  She loves working at Books & Brews because she’s a firm believer in the mission of providing “a place for people without a face.”  When she goes to work, she doesn’t feel like it’s a job.  It’s a privilege.  When she’s not working, she enjoys taking walks and going out with my friends.  Mixed media journaling and cross stitch really relax her.
