Personal Bio: Emily Pickett is the restaurant manager and sake sommelier of Kyo Kitchen & Bar in Halifax, NS. In 2020 Emily graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Science in psychology, to say the least running a restaurant wasn’t the natural trajectory. Serving through school was always an exhilarating experience but it wasn’t until opening Kyo that Emily found her passion for hospitality. Emily quickly climbed the hospitality ladder from serving, to bartending, bar managing and settling into restaurant managing with her compacted wisdom. Over this duration, her interest for wine, spirits and most notably, sake grew. Emily completed her WSET Level 3 in Sake in 2020 and has since completed her Certified Sake Sommelier program in 2022. Her current focus is to bring more attention and understanding to the relatively unknown spirit, Sake, to Atlantic Canada. The goal is to grow Kyo’s sake portfolio to reflect the restaurant approachable and quality-focused values. Emily is currently studying to become a wine sommelier through CAPS with hopes to graduate the program by  2023. In her spare time, you can expect to find Emily outdoors skiing, trail running, surfing and hiking.
