Sales Representative Metro

I got bit by the wine bug in 2010 when I joined the distribution world and have never looked back! I learned early on that wine is grown in the most beautiful places in the world and I love to travel so I realized I jumped into the perfect industry.  I have always been an On-Premise girl until this past fall when I joined the World Class Wines team and I got a few retail accounts. It’s been great experience to learn the other side of the industry. I received my Certified Sommelier certification from The Court of Master Sommeliers in April of 2012. The following year there was an opportunity to partake in the Wine & Spirits Education Trust Level 2 exam. I signed up immediately and passed with distinction! In 2014 I became Minnesota’s first Antinori Ambassador through Ste Michelle Wine Estates. I have learned more than I could have ever imagined about Italian wines and the Antinori family.
When I am not sipping on vino, I am either in downward facing dog at Corepower Yoga or biking with my husband, Evan, around cities. We have an energetic lab mix named Stout that loves joining us on the patio at our local South Minneapolis watering holes.
