Aerlume general manager, Cecilia Satterthwaite has a true passion for precision and a perfectly orchestrated symphony in a dining experience. Cecilia’s path to the Fire & Vine Hospitality team began with an Espresso Martini at El Gaucho Tacoma years ago. She says that when she opened the red door for the first time, she knew she was in the right place and that she hoped to eventually join the company. She began as GM at Aerlume in October 2021.
An industry veteran for nearly 14 years, Cecilia began working as a dishwasher before working her way up to a management role. She credits her time at The Social Bar & Grill for igniting her love of the hospitality industry, thanks to strong mentors and a memorable occasion serving the soldiers of the 3rd Battalion, 1st Special Forces where she was presented with an award for her selfless service and support of their group.
Cecilia is a Pacific Northwest native and she and her husband, Ryan, live with their dog Kody in Tacoma, WA. Cecilia has a secret talent for the hoola-hoop and her laugh lights up a room. She enjoys photography, baking, camping, concerts, traveling, and wine tasting with friends.
