About the Speakers

Preslea Thompson
Preslea Thompson Bartending

Tina and her husband have worked side by side for more than thirty years. They have a thriving plumbing and construction company and a lavender farm with one thousand plants going strong. Tina loves experimenting with the culinary uses for her favorite flowering herb, and has crafted a line of lavender-infused cocktail and coffee syrups (lavender, lemon, vanilla, peach, and cranberry), lemonade/limeade mixes, cocktail salts and sugars, and a fudge sauce that is to die for on homemade vanilla ice cream—all using the lavender grown right on their farm.

 Preslea Thompson has always loved the hospitality industry. In college, she worked at high-end restaurants and bars, where she discovered her passion for bartending. After graduating from Texas Tech University, Preslea knew that bartending, in all its fast-paced glory, was the career she wanted to pursue. In 2017, she launched Preslea Thompson Bartending, LLC.
