My love for Northern California, a great meal and the beverages that accompany them, landed me in the not-so-quiet town of Napa. Here, I am the sponsorship liaison for the Strategic Initiatives Group at The Culinary Institute of America. In this role, I support the director of corporate relations and the operations team, to ensure the promises we have made to our clients along the multiple programs we run, are met.

I recently checked off my first half marathon, which led me to volunteer and join the board of directors for Girls on the Run Sonoma County.

A planner at heart, you can often find me bouncing from one event to the next, while watching the Chicago Cubs score on my phone.
