I’ve been in the industry since 2001 and have worn many hats along the way, including being both a wine buyer and operations manager, so I am specially attuned to the needs of retail stores. I am extremely grateful to have worked alongside of and been taught by some of the best in the business…many of whom I am proud to work with now at The Wine Company. My biggest belief in this line of work is that wine should always be enjoyable and NEVER intimidating. I appreciate all wine, but hold a special fondness for Piedmont and Loire.
When I’m not working, I can usually be found with my better half, TC, up north camping on our 15 beautiful acres of raw land, soaking up nature with our two rescue dogs Charly and Maxine. In addition, I enjoying tending to my different coveys of quail, working on house projects, gardening, reading, and volunteering for the Wildlife Rehab Center of MN.
