A reset for me was to really understand how much I had to give every day — how much energy I had.

I am Head Bartender at Raines Law Room, Dear Irving and The Bennett. And it’s so easy when you’re young to get caught up in all of it. You love all of your coworkers and want to gossip and chat with them and hang out in the service bar. 

I realized I had to keep energy and good vibes for the guests, because this is what we’re here for. 

I look at my day like a pie — 20 percent for me, 20 percent for other people and 80 percent for the people who are paying. I stay very quiet during the day and just mostly chill out. Because I want to have the voice and the energy to talk to people for ten hours.
