2020-Present

CEO / Founder / Co-Owner of The Rogers Garden, a Rum Bar located in the heart of Flatbush, Brooklyn. This place acts as a temporary escape and slight reminder for those who need a taste of home. The Rogers Garden serves as a Caribbean oasis that puts great emphasis on the culture we’re all familiar with. I was a bartender for 16 years who traveled the islands to learn more about myself and the history that comes with it all. It became a passion to re-create the feeling that influenced her shift in thinking and new set of ideologies. I felt compelled to create a platform of expression that spoke to not only NYC but especially the Caribbean people who contribute to this City’s growth, every single day. Rogers Garden is a rum bar with products from all over the Caribbean, South America and so forth — not only does the rum represent each country individually, they all have an elaborate history attached to them. I knew my culture was special, Brooklyn deserves proper representation.
