Area Manager, Southwest Region
Born & raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I came to the great state of Colorado in 2004 by way of Charleston, South Carolina, where I lived for a few years after graduating from the College of Charleston.
Since graduating from college, I’ve always been in sales. I learned early on that if my career path was going to be in sales, I would have to be selling something in which I truly believed or enjoyed. When I realized that people could actually make a living selling wine, l set my eyes on the wine business. There are so many things that I truly love about wine & all that it encompasses.
I was fortunate to get my start in craft beer business with Great Divide Brewing Company as the Colorado State Manager. There is no better state than Colorado to have as a territory. To this day, I never get tired of driving through the beautiful Rocky Mountains and talking to people about wine.
In 2005 I was hired by Summit Distributing as the Downtown Denver Wine Sales Rep. This is where I was introduced to Folio’s wines. As a sales rep, Folio was my ‘go to’ portfolio. Every wine from Folio has history, a sense of place & adds relevance to a store or a wine list. It was for this reason, on the distributor side of the business, that I really enjoyed working with the wines from Folio. I worked as a distributor sales rep for 5 years. In 2010, I was hired as On-Premise State Sales Manager for Treasury Wine Estates. Shortly thereafter, in the fall of 2011, I came to work with Folio as the Southwest Area Sales Manager. I cover Colorado, Nevada & New Mexico. I am so grateful to be working with such a wonderful collection of wines, families & to be a part of Folio as a whole.
