I am originally from Henderson NC, but have lived in Pitt County since 2002 when I came to attend ECU. I graduated from there in 2006 with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. I have been in the banking/finance industry since 2004, and currently am a mortgage loan officer for Tidewater Mortgage Services, Inc. My husband Drew and I are currently in the process of opening our first business! MPourium is a bottle shop featuring 52 self pour taps. We will have beer, wine, champagne and cider on tap where patrons are encouraged to “Explore their pour” and try out different styles without having to commit to a full pint, as they will pay per ounce poured. We will also have a canner so that patrons are able to can 32 ounces of anything on tap to take home, as well as beer and wine to go from the bottle shop. We are extremely excited to be a part of the revitalization of Dickinson Avenue in Uptown Greenville, especially as alumni of ECU. MPourium is on schedule to open this Spring and is located at 814 Dickinson Avenue. I am a current member and past president of Greater Greenville Kiwanis and feel very strongly about giving back to the community I live in.
