I am so happy to be back in the wine and spirits world! I was born and raised in southern Minnesota. I got my start in restaurants at a very young age. I worked my way through various restaurant positions from dishwasher to expo, server to bartender, then wine buyer. Wine piqued my interest in my early twenties and that is when I began my wine studies. I have always been curious how grapes could take on so many different flavors.
One of my favorite parts of this job is that I get to work side-by-side with so many restaurants. I love being a helper and representing wines and spirits as my way of helping restaurants provide their guests with the best experience possible.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and our two daughters. I love spending time with friends, cooking, golfing, and being outside in general. I am trying very hard to be a gardener, but I am not having my luck yet! Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me. I hope I get to work with you in the future.
