If your go-to Heine Brothers’ is on Blankenbaker Parkway, you may know this month’s featured barista, Perri. When she’s not at Heine Brothers’, Perri is a freelance photographer!

 

Kate, the store manager at Blankenbaker, says Perri, “is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met and she’s an excellent barista! She is a really terrific photographer and much of her work is based off of certain song lyrics as a way of expressing emotion.”

As her one of her fellow Assistant managers says, “Jenny is a beacon at our store. It doesn’t matter what mood she’s in, when she comes into work she is full of good energy.

Meet Your Barista: John Mike @ Shelbyville Road

In Blog, Meet Your Barista, News // on December 30th, 2016 // by // 2 Comments

johnmike_4
If you frequent our Shelbyville Road store, you probably recognize one of our long-time baristas,  John Mike. Not only is he friendly, thoughtful and fun to work with, John Mike recently made a volunteer trip to Gatlinburg to help with the wildfire relief efforts there.
img_0020
Which location is your home store?
My home store is Shelbyville Road in St. Matthews. #streetsharks
How long have you been working at HB?
I have been working at Heine Brothers since 2014. I was originally at the former Westport Village location until it closed. Upon closing, I was transferred to Shelbyville Road and have remained there since.
johnmike_1
Louisville Native or Transplant?
As much as I want to say Louisville native, I am a in-state transplant. I came to Louisville for school at Boyce College.
You recently went to Gatlinburg to volunteer for wildfire relief – what inspired your trip?
Volunteering to serve the people of Gatlinburg and Sevier County, Tennessee was definitely a eye opening experience. While this was not the first time I went straight into disaster, this one was different: absolutely nothing was salvageable. My inspiration behind going to Gatlinburg is my Christian worldview. Just as Christ died to serve us as an atoning sacrifice, how much more am I called to go and serve those who are in desperate need? Ultimately, that is what inspired me to go.
img_0137
Was there a particular story or person you met during your trip that really stuck with you through this experience?
There were a number of stories that stuck with me. Story of a family who was trapped, ran on foot down a ridge for their lives; a local D.J. who has lost thousands of dollars because of burned down venues and wedding cancellations; a small local Church that lost their sanctuary with ten members who also lost their homes; the faces of family after family coming to the donation pick-up center I was sent to filled with anguish as their “new normal” was confined to a shopping cart filled with donated goods. Any one of these stories alone can bring tears to one’s eyes followed by heartbreak. Yet, these are the realities for those who call Gatlinburg/Sevier County, TN home.
Is this the first volunteer trip you’ve taken?
No. Previously, I partook in mission trips with my local Church at home in central Kentucky. While we met physical needs where we could, we also worked to proclaim the Gospel message of Christ as well. As previously mentioned as well, I also participated in the Henryville tornado clean up.
johnmike_5
Are you planning any other trips this year (volunteering or for fun)?
The biggest adventure that I will be taking in the remainder of 2016 is home for Christmas. Looking to 2017, I intend on going back to Gatlinburg to aid in the clean up efforts as things will begin to shift from material/donation needs being met to recovery/clean-up efforts. There also might be some other trips throughout the next year. I’m quite the traveling person.
Do you have any goals for the new year?
Goals for 2017: *insert generic new year goals here that no one keeps*
What advice would you give your 16-year old self?
Do not give up on your faith & obedience in God. Having endured several close relative losses, death of a friend, various personal issues, and even a desire to want to do things completely alone since I was 16, my faith in God and the response of the Church has been the thing that has kept me alive. Even though I have been faithless, God has graciously been faithful to me.
And finally, what’s your favorite HB drink?
My favorite drink has to be the Miel. Just the right amount of sweet, spicy, and delicious.
