Human Resource Specialist and Partner
My first visit to the Napa Valley in the mid-90s started my desire to work in the wine business. Shortly after, I gave up my Midwestern life and moved to Napa. I was fortunate to start my wine industry experience at Robert Mondavi Corporation in their Direct to Consumer department working my way up to managing their wine club and shareholder programs. In 2005, I entered the non-profit realm where I refined my technical skills as the Internet marketing manager for COPIA: The American Center for Wine, Food and the Arts. After leaving COPIA, I did a brief stint in the wine shipping business. I recently decided to change career directions and broaden my work experience to focus on Human Resources. I am thrilled to be working with Michael Mondavi and his family again.
I enjoy the wine country lifestyle through entertaining, cooking and visiting this Valley's many fabulous restaurants. My husband and I enjoy traveling near and far as much as possible. When traveling we try to experience the local lifestyle as much as possible (whether in Hawaii or Istanbul). We are avid hikers and bike riders and generally just try to enjoy each day as it presents itself.
