Public Relations & Marketing Coordinator and Partner
It is an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of the Folio team in such early stages of my career. To be able to learn from others within this company who have such extensive industry knowledge and experience is one of the most exciting achievements in life.
I graduated from California State University, Chico with a degree in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship. Prior to graduating I was fortunate enough to achieve a long anticipated goal in life and spend six months studying abroad at the Universidad del País Vasco in Bilbao, Spain. As a result of my experience abroad and passion (with the added influence of my father's enjoyment in wine) I was driven to find a career in the wine industry upon graduation. A week after graduation I moved to Napa and began as an intern at the Wine Garage in Calistoga where I worked my way into various capacities including retail sales, outside sales and assisting the wine club coordinator. During that time I also found myself eager to experience yet another side of the wine business while enjoying a seasonal position in the vineyards and winery with Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines as a Harvest Sampler.
In my spare time I enjoy; wine tasting, camping, hiking, wakeboarding, snowboarding, fishing (not always catching), and of course spending time with family and friends. Once I find the time and student loans, I hope to begin working towards an MBA with a focus in Wine Business at Sonoma State University. In the meantime I'll enjoy the experience of a lifetime here at Folio Fine Wine Partners.
