Bartender @ Michael's on Naples
Jocelyn has been bartending for over 13 years, working her way through any and all types of bars and restaurants. From corporate to mom and pop, catering to dive bar, Greek family restaurant to Italian fine dining, Jocelyn has been able to adapt and grow through the ever changing trends of bartending. Having come a long way from mojitos and mudslides, Jocelyn has cut her teeth in craft bartending for the past 5 years. She most recently has been working at Michael’s on Naples, an upscale and beautiful rooftop bar that allows her carte blanche when creating out of the box cocktails. With Michael’s allowing her full creative control, Jocelyn has really found her stride when it comes to concocting. She finds inspiration everywhere, from listening to a podcast, to French cuisine, even a sleep story meditation. She always does a ton of research and makes sure to have an interesting story or anecdote to say about every cocktail, a conversation starter if you will. As an actor, Jocelyn is a natural performer and loves to hold court behind the bar. She loves the interaction between guests and herself, building connections that many times turn into good friendships. Creating regulars is her thing, making not just repeat customers, but family.
