Nickname: Honestly I do not have any interesting nicknames yet.

Interests

Hello, my name is Kalea and I am an EMT/Firefighter in training. I attend Barberton High School as a senior. My time is spent mostly working or going to school. However, on the off occasion that I am actually free, I’m still at Kave either doing homework, meeting up with friends or just enjoying my surroundings. If I’m not doing that, I am probably at home playing music. No, I do not sing. I actually like to spend my time thinking and writing as well.

Favorite Drink

Currently, the Peppermint Hot Chocolate with a shot of expresso. I also love the Iced Green Tea with Vanilla. In the mornings, you will find me drinking Americanos 9 times out of 10.

What I'm Doing Outside of Kave

Hanging out outside of the bar either working on homework, or people-watching. If not that, I’m at home playing guitar or thinking.

Fun Fact

I want the community to know that I seriously love my job at Kave. I’ve wanted to work here since it first opened. And I recognize that I am so lucky to have a part-time job that I actually enjoy.
