Lucinda began her segue into bartending by packing up her SUV in Denver and embarking on a cross-country road trip to the East Coast. The NYC pit stop became a permanent residence. Over ten years later, and Lucinda calls NYC home, exploring the arts scene through music, fashion and photography and travels around the world striving to be a well-rounded bartender.
Starting in the industry by being introduced to Sasha Petraske, she served at Milk & Honey, Little Branch, and became a partner and bartender at Middle Branch.
Other interests include Veritas, Rocky Slim’s and organizations such as LUPEC.
Lucinda was a Finalist in the Peter F. Heering Sling Awards 2013.
