Makayla grew up in the Pacific Northwest and turned her love of nature and the great outdoors into a career representing some of the top craft breweries in the region. Originally from Bend, Oregon, she most recently worked as a project manager for Taphandles, a Seattle-based custom manufacturing company that helps breweries with design and marketing materials. Her ability to think strategically and execute helped transform a number of local breweries into recognized brands. When she’s not working, you’ll likely find Makayla mountain biking, snowboarding, fishing or just hanging out with her boxer, Rip. (Rip is a dog, not a fighter).
