She still recalls visiting her every summer in West Virginia. Her grandmother always showing her love and appreciation for her family through the food that she made and the stories that she shared.

Most recently, Lyssa was a member of the management team at a 4-star winery resort & spa, where she oversaw the operations of their award-winning restaurant.  When asked why she chose to come work with us at The Goat & Vine, Lyssa said, “I fell in love with the genuine concept and feeling of family at the restaurant. It truly is a special and unique place. In my almost 30 years of experience in the industry, I have never found another place quite like it.”
