For Redwood Empire Whiskey's head distiller Lauren Patz,
the secret to craft distilling is passion, palate and patience. Growing​ ​up in a winemaking family, she developed the palate and​ ​appreciation for good food and drink from a very early age.

After​ ​earning a dual degree in Classics and Japanese at Bates College,​ ​teaching English in Japan, and working at Tcho Chocolate's​ ​factory,
Lauren discovered her true calling when she joined Spirit​ ​Works, a small Sonoma County distillery, in 2013 as an apprentice​ ​distiller. Diving fully into learning her craft, she swiftly worked her
way up to Head Distiller and managed all Spirit Works operations
and product development for three years before joining Redwood
Empire Whiskey in January 2021.
Lauren has judged at the American Distilling Institute since 2017,
and taught distillation seminars and workshops in the local
community. Her passion and creativity help to push Redwood
Empire's innovation forward without abandoning its roots. "l ask
a lot of questions," she says, "and I drive us further toward
defining our identity on the distilling side."
For every bottle sold, Redwood Empire Whiskey plants a tree. Redwood Empire Whiskey is proud to partner with Trees for the Future to make a clear commitment to sustain our planet’s climate and livability. For every bottle sold, we will plant a tree.

​​This week’s guest on That's How We Role podcast is Patrice Juah, an accomplished author, award-winning poet, education entrepreneur and former Miss Liberia. She is the founder of the Martha Juah Educational Foundation, based in Liberia, West Africa. The Foundation launched the Sexy-Like-A-Book initiative, designed to inspire young women and girls to improve their perspective on reading, literacy, and education. She is a firm believer in the transformative power of education. Among MANY things, Patrice is a Mandela Washington Fellow for President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative.

Patrice’s desire is to motivate and empower young women by supporting local non-profit organizations to educate women on HIV/AIDs, teenage pregnancy, and education.

So let’s find out more about this incredible woman and her amazing accomplishments and platforms, as we welcome Patrice Juah.

Patrice Juah is a Communications and International Affairs Professional. As founder of the Martha Juah Educational Foundation, she champions girls’ education, leadership, and digital and information literacy through the foundation’s Sexy Like A Book initiative. The initiative takes a social and academic approach to address some of the barriers to girls’ education in Liberia.

Patrice works to improve girls’ perspectives on literacy and education by fostering creative expression and cultural awareness. Through public speaking workshops, mentorship meet-ups, and social excursions, girls not only enhance their capacity to tackle academic rigor but are equipped with the confidence and voice to write and speak about taboo topics in their communities. This approach of embedding Social Emotional Learning into girls’ education empowers girls with the social-emotional skills to think critically and make informed decisions as socially conscious young leaders.

Explore Sexy Like A Book’s Enchanting Voices Anthology (Book One), written by the first cohort of young writers. Proceeds from the book support the provision of scholarships and educational resources to girls in rural Liberia. A second anthology, written by cohort two, will be released later in 2021.

An accomplished author, award-winning poet, former Miss Liberia, and a firm believer in the transformative power of education, Patrice is a Steering Committee Member of Karanga - The Global Alliance for Social-Emotional Learning and Life Skills. She also supports the Liberia Literary Society as a board member and editor. Patrice is a Deutsche Welle Global Media Fellow, a Kistefos Scholar, and a Mandela Washington Fellow for President Obama's Young African Leaders Initiative. She holds a master’s degree in International Relations from the IE School of Global and Public Affairs at IE University, in Madrid, Spain. A perpetual knowledge seeker, she has a fascination for languages and enjoys fostering global collaborations. More on Patrice’s work can be found here:

Enchanting Voices echoes stories of a Liberia that could be but struggles in the now. It echoes stories of hope and dreams; of courage and resilience; of possibilities and a future waiting to bloom.
