Wine tells a beautiful story. Wine is history, wine is nature, wine is human creativity and vision. Wine is memories, wine is family, wine is friendship, wine is celebration. From vine to wine, there is nothing ordinary about this story in a glass. It is my mission to tell that story and to enrich the lives of others with a fun, educational, entertaining experience.
You can often find me at vineyards and wineries in my leisure time, or attending wine shows, expos and tastings all over. Wine is not just my job, it's my hobby and my passion. The more I learn about wine, the more I fall in love!
I hold the CSW (Certified Specialist of Wine) with Society of Wine Educators, WSET Level 3 Advanced certificate with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust, French Wine Scholar (FWS) with the Wine Scholar Guild, certified as an educator with the Boston Wine School (BWSEd), I have passed the Level 1 Sommelier's Exam with the CMS, and am currently studying for the Italian Wine Scholar (IWS) with the Wine Scholar Guild.
I enjoy many roles in the wine industry, each of which I have a true passion for. My roles include Executive Vice President of Sales and Acquisitions at VINOvations in Sharon, MA, Wine Educator at Boston Wine School, Wine Educator and Consultant with The Tasting Company and with Flow Wine Group, I have been an off-premise consultant and have worked behind the tasting bar at Hardwick Vineyard & Winery in Hardwick, MA since 2014. I also speak at corporate events and conventions as a wine educator, as well as offer consulting services to wineries, bars, and restaurants.
My mission is to bring enjoyment to others by demystifying the often intimidating world of wine. Wine is so much more than a beverage; it is an experience, and it tells a beautiful story.
