Doss won an Alternative Weekly award for her undercover feature on what it’s like to wait tables at Miami restaurants. In a previous life, she appeared off-Broadway and shook many a cocktail as a bartender at venues in South Florida and New York City. When she’s not writing, you can find Doss running some marathon then celebrating at the nearest watering hole.
