LisaAnn Bear

2020 Fuel Your Dreams Award Winner - NM

Beauty, Community and Purpose are the foundations of my life. I have raised my children and retired from a thirty-year career as a nurse and educator. Born and raised in beautiful Florida, I have a deep appreciation of nature and I spent many years as an environmental educator.

I am a proprietor of a bed and breakfast glamping experience and a Farm to Table experience. I work closely with local vineyards and farmers designing 4 course meals and pairings. 

I now reside in New Mexico and my love of wine bloomed with our beautiful vineyards so close. I have been a wine ambassador for New Mexico wine. 

Due to COVID 19, I have been unable to host. I channeled that energy into obtaining my intermediate sommelier. I intend to continue that journey. 

Wine is the perfect medium for connecting beauty, community and purpose. It is literally sunshine in a glass!

"This scholarship will cover my advanced sommelier certification. I am very grateful for this opportunity. It is especially appreciated during the pandemic that has really impacted the economy. I can continue to move forward despite economic barriers."
