I first discovered my love of wine while attending school in Charlottesville, Virginia. In three months, I visited 35 wineries on the Monticello Wine Trail (rough semester, I know) and immediately knew that my passion lay in education and building community around wine. After moving to Los Angeles post graduation, I worked at Winc, a DTC wine subscription startup, and later moved to Fiji Water to work for Justin Vineyards. Now, I’m ready to continue my wine education by returning to school to get my MBA in Wine & Spirits Business from the Burgundy School of Business in Dijon, France. I look forward to using my newfound knowledge to support others on their journey to learn and fall in love with wine just like I have.
I’m so grateful to the Women of the Vine & Spirits for helping fuel my dream. This scholarship will assist me as I take the next step in my wine journey and attend the Burgundy School of Business to gain my MBA in Wine & Spirits Business. I can’t wait to take all of my future learnings and experiences and help empower other women in wine as the WOTVS has done for me!
