Abby, Owner & CEO


Owner & CEO

UW Madison Law School school brought me to the Madison area, and that is where I truly realized my dream of becoming an entrepreneur, and fell in love with the city. After moving to the Grandview Commons neighborhood, I knew I found the perfect location for my vision. I instantly started my business plans for Twisted Grounds while continuing my law degree. My persistent nature compelled me to complete my law degree as this would always be valuable for my future; however, Twisted Grounds became my passion and long-time goal.


Assistant Manager

​I've lived in Madison for six years and it's been great so far! I am going to school at Madison College for graphic design and was apart of the women's soccer team. In my free time, I enjoy watching all kinds of movies and on rainy days I love to curl up with some coffee and a good book. Come stop by and get to know me and the rest of the staff!


Kitchen Manager

I've lived in Wisconsin for 3 years, and love the fall days. I'm a big animal lover, and I have 3 cats and a dog to show for it. I've been cooking since I was 11 and it's one of my favorite things to do. My favorite drink is a cortado made with really good espresso.



Born in Pennsylvania, but I was raised in Madison. I’ve been a barista for 3 years, and I absolutely love it, especially my time as a barista in Australia. My favorite drink is an iced americano black (no cream for this lady). Studying languages is my passion. I speak French and Korean—feel free to test out my skills on your next visit to Twisted Grounds! I’m looking to tackle Mandarina Chinese for my next language. In my spare time, I also enjoy horseback riding. Make sure to stop in and say hello!

Mayte, Barista



I’m from the east side of Madison and studying creative writing at UW Madison. I love my babies (my dog and cat named Panda and Mochi), writing, drawing, and making music. In the summer time you can find me sunbathing with an iced americano. In the winter I’ll drink anything that’ll warm me up.

Sarah, Manager



​As a barista for 5+ years, I'm excited to be crafting new experiences at Twisted Grounds! I enjoy being able to add creativity & sunshine to my community. As a Madison-born native, I love everything this city has to offer. When I'm not on coffee-duty, I like to go to live shows, volunteer with local theatre groups, and cozy up at home binging on cooking shows (or Psych... again). Stop by and say hello - I'll be glad to meet you!​



​I'm a music enthusiast who just so happens to be obsessed with crime shows and Batman. I go to Lafollette High School and play golf. My favorite drink to have is a dirty vanilla chai with spiced brown sugar. Make sure to come in and say what's up to your local weirdo.



Hi, I'm Morgan. I'm a student at Madison College currently enrolled in the Liberal Arts Transfer Program for Math, Science, and Technology. In my free time I love watching movies, baking, or spending time outside. My favorite drink to make is a cappuccino, but I love drinking iced caramel macchiatos.



I’ve lived in Madison my whole life and am really excited to start this new chapter as a barista. I’m very passionate about making music, and cooking. And my favorite drink is probably an extra dry cappuccino!
