Market Sales Manager, Texas
I grew up in the Dallas area and moved to New York to attend The Culinary Institute of America. Upon the completion of my Associates Degree, I spent almost a year training in a kitchen in France, where I realized that I was becoming more and more passionate about wine. Once back in New York, I started to make wine at Millbrook winery while I finished my degree. Then after a brief stay in London to gain my Advanced Certificate in Wine and Spirts from WSET, I got the opportunity to join the Williams Selyem winemaking team in the Russian River Valley in Sonoma, California. While there I learned the ins and outs of making high end Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
After Williams Selyem, I moved back to Dallas. While there I accepted a job with Republic National Distributing Company getting the opportunity to learn about the distribution side of the wine industry. After working as a Fine Wine Specialist with RNDC, I jumped at the opportunity to join Folio Fine Wine Partners in March 2017 as a Market Manager for the state of Texas.
In my free time I am currently studying with the Wine and Spirt Education Trust to take the Diploma exam in order to move on to the Master of Wine course. I love spending time with my friends and family and jumping out of airplanes as a certified skydiver!
