Evelyn’s career in hospitality started in Vancouver and quickly got recognition in the Canadian bartending scene with her unique approach to flavours. Throughout the years she has accumulated pedigrees such as : BarSmarts certification, WSET, Certified Specialist of Spirits, while finding success in multiple national & international cocktail competitions, including a win at the Global Beefeater MIXLDN championships in 2015; representing Canada against 31 other countries. She was given the opportunity to travel the world promoting Canadian cocktail culture. She runs the bar program at PrettyUgly, a high volume cocktail bar in Toronto. Drawing from her experiences in leadership, she is an advocate for building a solid, inclusive and integrated bar community within the Canadian market. A few years ago, she took over as the Canadian coordinator of Speed Rack, an all female charity speed bartending competition. Alongside Christina Veira, they hope to build a platform in which female bartenders can showcase their skills in a male dominated industry, while simultaneously raising funds for breast cancer research and education. She has taken on the project as co-curator of the Bar & Beverage Pavillon for Restaurants Canada Show 2019, building dynamic, forward thinking educational programming for the restaurants industry. She is thrilled to be involved with our industry’s rapid growth.
