My love for wine began during my study abroad in Spain in the late eighties. With that being said, I have a passion for Spanish wines particularly the Priorat. I also love anything old world and start off any social event with bubbles. In my spare time I am dining out at local haunts with friends, traveling, practicing yoga, reading, or hiking -recently the trails of Glacier National Park.
I have worked in the wine industry since 2002 with my tenure beginning at Thomas Liquors in St Paul conveniently located near my home having lived in Macalester Groveland since 1985. Matchmaking wine with customers is what I love most about this job as it is very rewarding to find the “right” wine. My travels include Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Chile, Argentina -mostly wine related. Beyond the wine world my first love is family and my husband Pete and I have four kids Elizabeth, Dan, Caroline and John and a Westie named Piper. How do handle all the miles on the road? I love all kinds of music especially the R&B.
