About Me

Hi, I’m Chase Waskey!

I’m a life-long Kentuckian with grand ambitions of traveling the world and reading as many books as possible. I live in Lexington, Kentucky, with my husband, four dogs, and a cat. We live in a 97-year-old craftsman bungalow that we love! I love cooking and baking (my sweet tooth is very real). I love spending my days reading, playing with my dogs, and taking bike trips with my husband to our favorite Lexington destinations.

I launched The Bookend Diner in 2019 and have loved connecting with people worldwide through books and food. I’m a mental health advocate and think we all need to take time to enjoy the things that bring us happiness.

Want to work together? 

I am always up for collaboration opportunities and the chance to work with new people! I especially love working with small female-owned companies. So, I would love to hear from you!
