Alex, aka The Hammer, was born and raised in Eastern Montana and has been with us for almost 3 years. We never have to worry when Alex the Hammer is around, because nothing breaks her stride. She’s quick, patient, and leads our team by by example.

fearless leader of the kitchen, Stephanie, aka Chefanie, leads with strong guidance and efficiency. She is dedicated, reliable, hard working, creative and talented. She takes pride in serving a killer breakfast to all of our customers and she works hard to keep our specials creative, colorful and locally sourced whenever possible.
Chefanie’s spirit animal is a wolf because she loves and leads her pack. Her favorite Nova meal is Huevos Rancheros with Chorizo and she’s on #teamsavory.
Will is new to the Nova team and from day one he fit right in. He is dependable, hard working and kind. He values being part of the team and is always willing to lend a hand in any area of the kitchen.
Amanda, aka Panda Bear, has been working at the Nova for over 5 years! She is always a pleasure to be around. She brings joy to her co-workers with her laughs, jokes and nicknames. Her spirit animal is a ninja butterfly because she loves to sneak up behind people and make them smile.
Rachael is our cheery weekend host. Her great attitude shines brightly and she always wears a smile even before having her morning latte. She is from Livingston, but her spirit animal is from much further a field - her coworkers say she is a gazelle because she is silent and swift.
Jess “The Proclaimer” started at the Nova Caféminimal line experience but has become a griddle master in no time flat. Originally from Michigan, she attends MSU full-time and works full-time - no easy feat.
Her spirit animal is a pug, because pugs are freakin’ awesome. When not at work or school, she plays the ukelele and Pokemon Go. Her favorite Nova meal is, well, anything made by Chefanie - and she plays on both #teamsavory and #teamsweet.
Andrew B., aka Kandy, grew up in Livingston. Hs spirit animal is a panda, because they’re chill. When he’s not working he loves to be outside. He’s a member of #teamsavory and his favorite Nova meal is the Breakfast Burrito. Wise beyond his years, he is a critical-thinker, innovative problem solver and work horse. He is self-motivated, positive, intelligent, thorough, funny, fun and a fountain of random and interesting facts.
Stacey is new to our Nova family and has made quick work of learning the ropes. She can handle any rush, and she always finds time to be kind and gentle with guests and coworkers. Stacey’s spirit animal is a penguin because they embody her awkward humor and clumsy ways (her words, not ours.) Her favorite Nova meal is the Turkey Hash but she swings both ways between #teamsavory and #teamsweet.
Zach is a treasure in the kitchen. He works thoughtfully and carefully, and keeps us giggling. We adore his goofball humor, quick wit and optimistic attitude. His spirit animal is Seth Rogan, obvs. His favorite Nova meal is Biscuits & Gravy for Players, and he’s on #teamswavory, because... pineapple. When he’s not working at Nova, he plays guitar and collects wax from cheesewheels for his extensive wax statue collection.
