Amanda Fullam was born and raised in Rhode Island, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in photography from Rhode Island College in 2013. By then her love with the restaurant industry had already been sparked. Living briefly in California, learning from some of the best bartenders there are, she found her calling behind the bar mixing and creating craft cocktails. She joined the Basta team in November of 2018 as our Assistant Manager in charge of the beverage program and bartending team. When she isn’t creating cocktails she enjoys traveling and trying new bars and restaurants throughout the world.
