Meet The Crafted Team!
Though we couldn’t do it without the support and hard work of HUNDREDS of other people, the three of us tirelessly work to make Crafted a reality! We’re here to help, and happy to have you reach out to any of us with anything you need!
Founder & CEO
With her passion for delicious and nutritious food, craft beer and live music of most any kind, Amie set out on a new mission to create an event that people would look forward to and be proud to be a part of. She wanted to offer an experience that was different from the typical beer & festival food event, to help people discover new local beers and how amazing food prepared from fresh, whole ingredients could taste. She was also determined to offer options for those who normally have to pack their own sandwich when they go (or is that just Amie?). A hippie at heart, Amie has been going to all kinds of art, music and food festivals since the early '90s when she went on the road to follow the Grateful Dead. A lot has changed since then, of course, but her love for community and the positive energy of people joining together has remained unchanged. In addition to good food, beer and music, Amie loves to cook and enjoys experimenting with all sorts of organic, vegan and gluten-free ingredients and flavors. She is also a runner, avid traveler and loves hiking and skiing when she has the chance. Amie lives in Dublin, Ohio with her husband, Damion, & dogs, Mazzie & Zoie and has one daughter, Sydnie, who is studying special education at OSU. Amie is also the CEO for a mortgage service company where she has been a partner since 2004, and is an enthusiastic community volunteer!
Director of Operations
Ethically grown food, a variety of beer and great live music? Crafted Festivals resonate deep within Olivia’s heart. She is passionate about local, farm-fresh, ethically raised meat and produce and the positive impact it can all have on an individual’s health and wellness. With humble beginnings scooping ice cream to pay her rent, she now has nearly four years of experience as a corporate event planner for events nationwide. Olivia is elated to be able to use her expertise and event coordinating kung-fu within an organization that her soul can really get behind. She believes that the energy and attitude that goes into something is exactly what will come out of it. Growing up and currently residing in Dublin, Ohio, Olivia is truly vested in having a positive impact on her community, as well as others that she serves. On most weekends, you can find her powerlifting in the gym, at the local farmer’s market or taking her basset hound puppy and English bulldog to the dog park.
Crafted Festival has turned this wine drinker into a diversified beer enthusiast who loves exploring all different styles and flavors of locally crafted brews. And because taking care of the environment is a passion of Jen’s, it comes as no surprise she also loves supporting the local organic farms and butchers showcased by Crafted restaurant partners. Jen has an extensive background in sales and customer relations and brings her sales expertise, gift of gab, dedication and positive attitude to her position as Festival Coordinator. She enjoys using all of these skills to plan an event that unites communities and highlights local businesses. Jen lives in the small town of Medina south of Cleveland Ohio with her husband Tony and 4 boys: Michael, Joey, Andrew and Danny. As you can imagine, with four boys, Jen is always on the go from volunteering at school events to sports and theatre. When she gets the chance to relax, she loves to spend time with her family, work out, read and crochet (we’re hoping she’s working on our birthday presents now).
