Manager/Social Media Coordinator
I am originally from a small town in Virginia called Big Stone Gap. I moved to Augusta County when I was 8 years old. I graduated in the class of 2022 from Fort Defiance High School. I am now studying Business Administration and Entrepreneurship at Liberty University Online.
I have been working at North Ridge Café & Coffee since its opening in 2021. Before the café was open, I would drive by eager to see the new coffee spot and restaurant coming to the Verona/Staunton area. A wonderful friend of mine knew the owner of the building and was able to refer my name to Kent! I went into the café that was still gaining its finishing touches and met the owner, Kent Lam, for an interview and have been working at North Ridge ever since! Over time I have gained more responsibility for the café and have loved every moment of it.
Since the beginning, the goal has been to create a place for our customers to bring their families and friends, and continue to come back! Even if you are just driving through the area, we surely have something for you! One of my favorite parts of my job is to make connections with our customers and create an environment everyone can appreciate. If you haven't stopped by yet, I encourage you to come see us! Whether you need a caffeine fix, a new favorite meal, or just stopping in, there is something for everyone! I hope to see you soon!
