Official Bio:

Two words to describe me, happy and passionate. I’m an east coast transplant that loves CA and my new home in Napa. I spent many years in Bucks County, PA as a photographic artist and was lucky enough to follow my passion for photography which, in turn, became a successful business for over 20 years. As a photographic artist one of the greatest joys I had was capturing and creating memories of the important times in people’s lives. It makes me happy knowing that my clients, family and friends all have permanent memories of their most important life events.

It was after friends shared a 15 year old Napa Cab, I developed an immediate hankering for wine. I was hooked and wanted to know more about this magical juice. In 2014 the opportunity to move to CA presented itself. When I moved to CA I thought it would be “the dream” to live in Napa and sell wine. A little over 4 years later and I am living that dream.

I have been working in the wine industry with wines from the old world for the past couple of years and have learned to appreciate the subtleties based on regions, though I still prefer new world wines (at least for now). Over the years I’ve spent a lot of time learning about wine, including tasting, enjoying wine pairings and most importantly, sharing those experiences with friends and family. I continue to hone my craft and recently received WSET 1 and 2 accreditation from the Napa Valley Wine Academy. I enjoy opportunities to share my knowledge and insight with others. I look forward to guiding you with your wine and spirits selections that will enhance the memories you are creating with the amazing people in your life.
