Like many students I hadn't yet found my 'purpose' by college. When, by chance, for a business plan competition I was paired with a business woman who went on to start a wine import and distributing company, everything changed.


Life-changing events happen when least expected and this serendipitous encounter lead me to wine. I went to Seattle to help start a company then moved to Florence to study wine and winemaking. A few other great wine jobs before landing NYC to continue in an industry I love. I’m now pursuing a Nursing Degree at NYU, but I continue to love wine and all it has to offer.
