Jasmine comes to Toad with an eclectic background. A South Carolina native, she spent the first five years of her career in DC serving as an International Relations Officer in the Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs. There, she conducted research and engaged foreign governments to address child labor, forced labor and human trafficking issues across Eastern Europe in Central Asia. In need of a change, Jasmine discovered the Gunnison Valley via a stereotypically millennial adventure, which started with converting a school bus into a tiny home and ended with love at first sight as she drove into Crested Butte. Since coming to the Valley, Jasmine has worked as a bartender and manager at the Dogwood and become actively involved in the community by joining the City Council. Outside of work, you can find her roaming the trails around Crested Butte with her unreasonably fluffy dog, Skylar. Jasmine holds an M.A. in Russian, Eastern European, and Central Asian Area Studies from Harvard University, and a B.A. in International Studies and Russian from the University of South Carolina.
