Bartender Profile: Heather Sandt

Tell us a little about yourself, your family and where you grew up.

I was born in Seoul, South Korea. When I was a little over a month old, I was adopted by my awesome parents. We moved to Hawaii when I was three and spent four beautiful years there. After that, we moved to Yokota Air Force Base in Japan. I'm lucky that my dad was in the military, so me and my mother, who is also South Korean, got to travel back to Korea quite often, no matter where we lived. In 1994, Dad retired after thirty years in the Air Force and we moved to Niceville, Florida. I love this town so much. After my time at Florida State University, I knew I would make this town my permanent home!
