Prior to joining The Wine Company, my wine and spirits career was based in restaurants. And with more than twenty years of experience, I am a proud restaurant industry veteran.
I love restaurants… A LOT. But more, I am grateful for them. Restaurants have introduced me to some of my favorite things in life… Many of my best friends (including my husband), an appreciation for wholehearted hospitality, and of course, wine!
My current wine infatuation involves all things Nebbiolo, particularly Barolos. But I am an equal opportunity beverage specialist who believes that all wine and spirits deserve a spot on the table. Preferably, when expertly paired with a multi-course dinner. (Apertifs and Digestifs are a must!)
I am thrilled to be part of a company that values environmental sustainability, and the fact that biodynamic and organic farming practices are becoming more common gives me hope for the future.
After all, we are just borrowing this planet from our future generations.
For four years of my career, I lived and worked in Las Vegas, and the Southwest has a special place in my heart. Of course, working alongside wine and culinary rock stars impressed, but it was the mountains and multitude of accessible national parks that kept this Minnesota native in awe. I am the mother of an inquisitive toddler named Jakob, and I cannot wait to re-experience the parks through his eyes.
