Associate Brand Manager
My journey to wine country started in an odd location, rural Indiana but in a not so unique fashion – walking the fields with my grandparents and learning how important the soil and terroir are to our lives. I was instilled with a passion for all things natural and wanted to see the world. I discovered the beautiful world of wine working as Tasting Room Manager at an urban winery in Indianapolis, the more I learned about the art of winemaking, the more vineyards I visited, the more I knew this was my life’s passion. At this small supplier I quickly moved over to a marketing role developing skills in graphic design, brand development, and sales analytics that culminated in developing a wine brand that went on to distribution in 4 states.
In 2019 I was offered an amazing opportunity – a marketing position in Napa Valley, the undisputed capital of wine in North America. I packed all my bags and began work at Peju Province Winery in the heart of the Valley. I went on to work as Ecommerce and Digital Marketing Manager at Mi Sueño Winery with vineyards in Napa and Sonoma. I have found a home with Folio Fine Wine Partners which allows me to not only work with the best producers domestically but all over the world.
I live by C.S. Lewis’ words “None can be an exile if he remembers that all the world is one city.” And wine is an international language. I have visited wineries from Croatia to Washington, from The Finger Lakes in New York to Tuscany with no plans of slowing down.
