Hey, there! I am a certified sommelier and Certified Specialist of Wine with 21 years of experience serving wineries in emerging wine regions, with experience in wines made from vinifera, cold hardy, and native grape varieties. My wine career began in 2002 as a packaging and an oak barrel/alternatives supplier, and I’ve served the eastern U.S., Midwest U.S., Washington State, and all of Canada for Tonnellerie Cadus (and now AnA Selection and Clayver) since 2015.

I have served since 2016 on the board of the Michigan Wine Collaborative and am currently the President of the Board of Directors, helping to garner support for the Michigan wine industry and promote Michigan wines throughout the state and on the world wine stage.

I serve as a media source for national and regional freelance writers and publications, and I co-founded #openlocalwine, a free promotional event for emerging wine regions in 2020 and 2021 to raise awareness of emerging wine regions and encourage local wine purchases during the pandemic, with Press Fraction’s Lenn Thompson.

Sign up at the bottom of any of the posts on my News page for real-time notifications on stock barrel inventory, Cadus/AnA/Clayver updates, food and wine pairings, links to relevant podcasts and social media posts, and a blog detailing the adventures of a wine industry supplier (every day I realize how grateful I am to get paid to taste wine with winemakers in incredibly beautiful settings!).

Thanks for visiting. Cheers!
