Meet your Barista- Jazz

Jazzmyn wears many hats at Live Oak... she is not only our Hospitality Manager and the Queen of Clean... she is our Captured Community liason.  You can find her slinging espresso shots one minute and teaching an abstract art class the next.  We LOVE getting to know her and it is a joy to watch her art & graphic design business flourish.  Here are a few more notable things Jazz has to share:

What is your name?


Tell us where you are from,

Southern California (sounds heavenly doesn't it?)

What is your favorite Coffee Drink?

Oh man so many choices, Cinnamon Mocha, Cappuccino, vanilla Cold brew Red eye  (right?!)

What do you LOVE about Midland?

I love the opportunity to grow yourself without feeling intimidated by the immediate world around you. Like what you do is making a difference  (me too, one of my favorite things about Midland is that it feels like a small town with big city amenities & opportunity)

How do you hope to make Midland a better community?

I hope to simply bring the idea of how amazing each person is individually and how we each have a great part to play in the grand scheme of things. (amen)

What is an embarrassing moment you can laugh at?

Dang, um, most recently, I was carrying the electric kettle out to Ethan's car when I slipped on some ice and went down real quick, but managed to not spill the water or get to hurt. Then to hear my fall from Ethan's point of view and Logan's from inside the shop lol.  (hahahaha, oh man)

What is your favorite thing about Live Oak?

My favorite thing is the people. Everyone has made me feel empowered by my own destiny. Like I can do anything. It's a beautiful place.  (some people look for a beautiful place, others find a place and make it beautiful.... you my dear Jazzmyn are part of why it is such a beautiful place)

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy simply hanging out with my Babea And my 3 cats.  (i love that Jazz's cats have human names Dan, Josie & Wilbur)

What are you passionate about & what are some of your dreams?

Making people feel important, like their story matters and what they've been through makes them beautiful. (<-Passion) my dream would be, to simply make a difference in people's lives, through art, advice, anything. To simply touch their lives.  (I am with you sister, let's do it)

What is your favorite Charity and why?

4ocean at the moment. They clean up our oceans:)  (very cool, here is a link to check it out and see how you can help:
