Associate Brand Manager
Born and raised in Maryland, I moved to the Golden State fifteen years ago, and after traveling to California’s world-renowned wine regions, I was bitten by the proverbial wine bug. Starting as a hobby, wine quickly became a passion for me, so much so, that after a ten-year career with a dotcom in Los Angeles, I decided to head off in search of grapes and grip.
Determined to make wine my new career, and eager to learn about this complex business, I moved to New Zealand to begin my immersion in to this fascinating product and industry. After helping Wine Marlborough manage and deliver the educational component of their annual wine and food festival, and after learning more about production while working a vintage for Framingham Wines, I headed to Napa Valley to further expand my wine business knowledge in the areas of direct-to-consumer sales and consumer and trade marketing.
Tapping in to twenty-plus years of sales and marketing experience, with the last five being devoted to wine, I am so excited to be working for the Michael Mondavi family and with the talented and dedicated team at Folio Fine Wine Partners. I look forward to the opportunity to add value here and to help grow the wine brands in this unique and impressive portfolio.
In my free time I love to experience great wine and great food and taste my way through this iconic Valley.
