After a decade of working in cubicles, she became restless, sold her belongings and headed off to Florence, Italy where she taught English and sold Florentine leather in a boutique shop. It was there that she had her “ah-ha moment” with wine. A 1998 Brunello di Montalcino literally changed the course of her life. As her palette and passion for wine developed, she set her sights on Napa for the move back to California. An exciting new career began at Domaine Chandon in 2006 where she worked as an Ambassador of Wine for both Chandon and Newton Vineyard, while gaining a solid foundation in wine education, hospitality, marketing and management.
