Meet triplet sisters—co-owners of all things Shine.
Founded by “The Blissful Sisters.”
Triplets Jessica. Jill, and Jennifer Emich, formerly of the acclaimed restaurant Trilogy Wine Bar & Lounge, launched the second iteration of Shine: Shine Restaurant & Potion Bar. This new transformation of Shine was inspired by their desire to continue to keep the community alive and thriving by being really true to their passion of nourishing people from the inside out. They feel a drive and responsibility to serve food that is sourced from local farmers and grown organically and prepared holistically for best optimization to not only build health in our bodies but in our local economy as well.
first born, and the alpha of the three, I like to say. I have a restaurant management degree as well as a culinary arts degree and my masters in holistic nutrition and certification in metabolic typing. I was the co-owner and Executive Chef at our first restaurant Trilogy Wine Bar and Lounge and have continued to oversee the kitchen and the creative of our menus. I believe food is fuel, everything you eat literally becomes you, so I take great responsibility in serving only the best ingredients and in a way to make sure it is properly digested and assimilated in your body to help make you feel great. My menus are unique, satiating and wildly delicious. Nourishing comfort food I like to call it. I live in Boulder with my beautiful two daughters and Czech husband.
the middle of the three sisters, I have both a restaurant management degree & culinary arts degree and have always enjoyed bringing people together and building community. I also am a dance teacher. My mission and purpose in life is to continually encourage people (including myself) to explore and dig deeper into their personal beings, to share their gifts and passions and SHINE from the heart. My role at Shine as well as teaching, help fulfill that. I believe that feeling good in our bodies is vital to living an inspired life. Getting to feed people and quench their thirst in a health-giving way like we do at Shine inspires me every day. My focus is on Shine Potions, magic, community outreach, continuing to expand my knowledge and offerings of all things food and drink, and to be of service to the greater good.
the youngest of the three, as well as the most organized and even keeled of us, I consider myself the nuts and bolts. I studied Elementary Education which makes me enjoy being a bit of a mother hen to the Front of House team. At our previous endeavors, I ran the day to business operations and ran the Front of House Operations. I believe the hospitality industry is a beautiful art and I enjoy immensely listening to people, connecting with guests and getting to know what makes them smile. From my own life experience, I believe in the healing power of food and I am so passionate to be able to share that with our community. I live in Boulder with my fabulous supportive husband and our beloved cat Willow.
