Post college, DeJorn moved to San Diego where her bartending career began on Harbor Island for two years, followed by bartending at a high volume account in Denver near Coors Field.

The fast paced world of the bar led DeJorn to pursue a short stint in the air as a flight attendant on United Airlines. After United downsized Dejorn was displaced to Chicago. Once again the bar called; she bartended at Sushi Samba for two years before opening and managing the bar program at the Douglas Rodriquez restaurant Delacosta.

While at Delacosta, DeJorn furthered her love of the bartending world by joining the USBG chapter in Chicago and consulting part time for Moet Hennessey and Bacardi USA. In 2008 she took a job with Domaine de Canton as their Illinois Brand Ambassador, and in 2009 took on Indiana as well as Wisconsin.
DeJorn left her position with Domaine de Canton in March 2010 and started with Lucas Bols on April 1.  In addition to her position with Lucas Bols, she bartends part-time at Sable, the new and highly-looked-at cocktail bar adjacent to the new Palomar Hotel.
