I grew up in Davis, California so I must have been destined for the wine industry from birth. It still amazes me when I meet winemakers from top estates around the world who have studied enology in my hometown. From my first trip to Europe as a tween I realized that I wanted to find a way to infuse my life with international travel, culture, food and art. Eventually that would include wine as well!
I started my wine journey at Robert Mondavi Winery after completing an international business Master program at Georgetown University. I had the opportunity to work on re-launching the Robert Mondavi Private Selection brand, before transitioning to the Imports division, where I managed the marketing efforts for joint venture and partner wineries in Italy, Chile and Australia. That led me to Folio for the first time in 2006, when I helped launch our Spanish portfolio, and I returned in 2022 as Brand Director for the Luxury Marketing Team, where I am thrilled to reunite with both new and familiar faces at Folio and among our winery suppliers.
Outside of wine and work, I can usually be found with family and friends in the San Francisco Bay Area. I enjoy playing sand volleyball, cycling, hiking with my dog, hearing music outdoors, cheering for the Golden State Warriors, and spending time in the mountains.
