Mandey is a lioness in human form, and our fearless, smiley leader! When Mandey is not taking care of our shop's day-to-day needs, this powerhouse is making art in multiple mediums, vending at art fairs, or performing in plays with Theater Cedar Rapids, or cuddling her cat, Sufi. Mandey is also a University of Northern Iowa graduate (2014)- holding a BFA in performance art.
She loves our utterly fabulous chai lattes with almond milk.
