About Me.

Born in Rochester, NY, I had studied dance my whole life. After graduating from the University of Buffalo with my BFA, I set off into the world as a Professional Dancer working for companies like Carnival Cruise Lines, Princess Cruises and Disney. While traveling the world, I was exposed to new and exciting things like wine & fashion.

 

It was in my late 20s when I had decided to move to New York City to pursue my dreams of working in Fashion (there was a man too, of course). Although I had successfully worked my way up the corporate ladder, there was something missing. Not dancing anymore left a piece of my soul empty that no job or person could fill it. Cue wine. 

Learning about wine has fulfilled me in ways I could never imagine. Wine to me has become a place, an emotion, a connection and a feeling. I truly believe that once you discover this, your wine journey begins. 

I have completed the WSET 1 and WSET 2 with distinction, and am currently enrolled in the WSET 3.  I have partnered with brands including Honest Cooking Magazine, Coravin, Jadot, Tattinger USA, Clif Family Winery and more. 

Want to partner? I'm happy to provide my media kit upon request.
