A combination of 80's rock n roll, a plateful of glitter and a keyboard fueled by caffeine properly defines this pink-haired singer/songwriter. Thrilled to be joining the Stillwater Fam, AVP enjoys all things espresso with her favorite drink being ever-changing (like her hair color). Alisabeth owns a photography company - whatsyourtint.com - and can normally be found fronting her rock/pop band. For more fun stuff: alisabethvonpresley.com

While attending Purdue University, Kellie found a passion for coffee and dreams of opening her own shop one day. Until then, she hopes to continue to learn more about coffee and business as one of our assistant managers.

Alex loves making wheel thrown functional vessels that range from travel mugs to hanging planters.
