I began my career as a microbiologist, but my need for excitement led me to Adventure Ed. I taught students how to rock climb, zip line and tie those all important survival knots. Along the way, I fell in love with wine. I am consumed by the stories that unfold as each glass is poured. I am a UC Davis enology program graduate. I hold WSET L2 w/ distinction, Champagne specialist, Côte du Rhône and Somm Day Service certificates. My husband and I own Dracaena Wines in Paso Robles. I write an award winning blog, produce a top ranked podcast and am always on the lookout for my next great wine adventure. I’ll never tell you what to drink, but I’ll always share what’s in my glass.
