Meet Our Cast

Kayla Black
Museum Director

I started with Old Town Trolley in January of 2013 and the rest has been… history! Since starting I’ve done everything from drive trolleys, train CASTmembers, write scripts, and now I’ve been given the opportunity to manage the first attraction in Savannah – the American Prohibition Museum. Old Town Trolley and Historic Tours of America have been great to me and I continue to enjoy my job and CASTmates.
Gabrielle “Gabbie” Heintzelman
Assistant Museum Director

I was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I just moved to Savannah with my husband, Blake, in April. We have two cats, Nemo and Cleo. I grew up in East Tennessee. I love theatre. I grew up doing shows when I was younger, and I still love to do anything involving a show that I can. What brought me to Old Town Trolley was that I was looking for a job that would put my love of showmanship and vacation planning together. This seemed to be an ideal fit, and I am loving it so far!

Jason “B’Lake” Graham
Bar Manager

I grew up in La Fargeville, New York, before moving to Savannah many years later. When I heard the American Prohibition Museum was putting a bar in their museum, I knew it was the job for me. I was thrilled to join the team as the Bar Manager of Congress Street Up. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending my time reading. I also love going on long walks around the city with my dog Illy.
Paul Rabe
Groups and Event Coordinator

My mother and father immigrated to the US in 1970. They raised me and my two sisters in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. My oldest sister moved to Hilton Head in 1996. I followed in 2003. I have a wife and child. All of the people listed above are cooler, stronger, and meaner than me. I am however the best looking in the group. When I’m not working, I spend my free time thinking about how I should be working. I joined the American Prohibition Museum when I met Jason and saw how happy it made him.

Travis Spangenburg
Creative and Production Manager

I grew up in Hamburg, NJ with my mom, dad, brother and sister. My childhood consisted of playing in nature and hungrily learning everything I could about history and the world around me. We are a family of travelers. When I’m not spending time on the floor of the museum, you can find me on various Savannah stages. I act and direct for Savannah Shakes and I am a player in The Odd Lot Improv Troupe. I also dabble in productions with other companies when I can find the time!

Ellie Donohue
Manager in Training

Combining my love of history and hospitality is a dream come true. Before my role as a manager-in-training, I served as the visitor experience coordinator at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. I worked with school groups across the country promoting civic education and welcomed visitors from across the globe! I earned an M.S. in Hospitality Management from Temple University and a B.A. in History and Art History from Wofford College.
Mercy Schaefer
Manager on Duty/Docent

I like birds and fish. My favorite fish is a goblin shark. I am a Libra sun, Scorpio moon, and Scorpio rising. I like to sew and sit on my couch and drink coffee.

Sales Representative

I’m originally from San Francisco. I am a retired Air Force Veteran! I have two daughters, Amber and Jasmin. I love my life! I like to tap dance, paint and draw. I also play the flute, saxophone, piano and classical guitar. Kayla, is what brought me to Old Town Trolley Tours.

Door Host / Bartender

I was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. I grew up with my older brother, Keaton, and raised by my parents, Cory and Randy. I moved to Savannah to attend SCAD’s jewelry program in 2018. When I’m not working, I love to walk my furry four-legged wolf, Millo. I also love to draw, paint, and make jewelry in my free time. I started working for American Prohibition Museum when I met Jason, through a mutual friend, and he brought me over.

Christian “Chris”

I’m originally from Savannah, Georgia. I’m the youngest of three and grew up in a military family. I’m a hard-working individual, a self-starter, and creative behind the bar. In my free time, I enjoy competing in powerlifting. I decided to join the Prohibition Museum team because I wanted a fresh start that would also help expand my knowledge.


I am a 23-year-old mixologist. My family and I have the best relationship, so much so that I moved here to be closer to them after college at the University of South Carolina. My hobbies include playing with my dog, creating fun cocktails, playing the guitar, and reading.
Isabel “Izzy”

I’m originally from Chesapeake, Virginia. I have two younger sisters and was originally born in California, but grew up in VA since my dad was in the Navy. I have a bachelor’s of arts in history and a minor in biology. I like to read, draw, and watch movies when I’m not working. I saw an advertisement for Ghosts and Gravestones and applied. I also noticed that the Prohibition Museum was hiring and applied to get myself out of the house during the day.

I’m kind of a big guy with a big bushy beard. At ten years old I left New York for Georgia with my family, where we’ve all been living ever since. Now, I’m happily married to a great wife and little cat. I like to spend my free time playing video games and working on my art. I wanted to work in the museum industry and the American Prohibition Museum provided a great opportunity.

I am humble and grateful for being alive and well. My mom and sister are currently in Florida and I’m looking forward to reuniting with them soon in Savannah. I am the Executive Artistic Director of the Performing Arts Collective Savannah and look forward to doing great things in the area.
Anysia “Anya”

I love all things art related. I’m an avid gamer and love watching movies of all genres. I’m also a dog mom!
