Amie Ward is the Beverage Director of r. bar in Baltimore, Maryland, and is a NCEP Certified Personal Trainer with a B.S. and M.A. in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland College Park. She has travelled across the United States to educate bartenders on how to care for themselves, and teaching free movement classes for the Baltimore bartending community.  Her accolades include both Editors' and People's Choice for Best Baltimore Bartender 2016 in Baltimore Magazine, among others. Amie shares her love of Italian spirits and sustainable bartending methodologies through educational seminars for guests and bartenders on the topics. In her spare time, you can find Amie pulling trucks, competing in Strongwoman competitions, or on the track with the Charm City Roller Girls.

Ashley McMichael has been in the industry for over 15 years, and behind the stick for 10 of them. From casual drinker, to bar rat, to late stage alcoholism, to rehab and AA, Ashley has run the gamut.  Sober for over two years now, Ashley will share her story of maintaining a job in the industry that she loves, serving the very thing that almost killed her, while keeping her sobriety first.

Demi Brown received her 200 hour certification in Costa Rica in 2016 and has been teaching ever since. She creates a light-hearted atmosphere for yoga where students are asked to practice yoga simply for the joy that it brings - laughter is encouraged. She hopes her students leave class a little yoga-stoned and with tools to find inner peace and balance to incorporate in their daily lives.
