Christina Veira was honored to be chosen as one of Imbibe Magazine’s Imbibe 75, "one of the people, places and directions that will shape the way you drink in 2019". Most recently, she curated the Bar & Beverage Pavilion at Restaurants Canada Show and Speed Rack Canada (Seasons 3 & 4) and in 2019 was selected by WSET as one of the 50 under 40 future influencers of the global drinks industry. She has occupied every front-of-house position (and a couple in the kitchen) while pursuing certifications in wine and beer, even winning a cocktail competition here and there. When not in her present role managing a multi-venue event space, her focus is on industry education, event execution and using the hospitality industry as a catalyst for community engagement and fundraising. She aims to establish her project “Side Duties” as a registered Canadian non-profit with the goal of linking the hospitality industry with local charities and initiatives that are mutually beneficial. Over the course of the last few years, she has been able to harness her skills while raising over $50k for Nellie’s Women’s Shelter and various other charities.
