After becoming the head bartender at Picca, Deysi was brought in as the master mixologist for Mochica, Paiche and Blue Tavern. As she continued to deepen her knowledge she was recruited by Casey Lane to create a bar program for Viale Di Romani in West Hollywood. Most recently she has created the bar programs for Blacksmith and St Anne’s and now works at Eataly, Terra part time to also dedicate her time building A Taste Of Deysi and spending time with clients to ensure quality products.
