I am a technology professional, who founded my consulting business, Vine Wire Consulting, in 2013 after 20 years in Silicon Valley with the goal to serve the growing technology needs of the wine industry. I am also a successful wine & spirits blogger who co-founded the Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship, and speak on topics of networking, social media strategy and building your brand.
Recently, I earned my Certified Specialist of Spirits credential, and I also hold my Certified Specialist of Wine credential.
This spring, I will embark on my MBA journey, specializing in creating and delivering more expertise in the wine industry via the Wine MBA program at Sonoma State University. This is just the latest stop in my plan for wine world domination!
I enjoy travel, amateur mixology and photography as well as a great glass of pinot noir.
