Client Relationship Management and Legal Marketer for a law firm titan based out of New York. We serve an industry that is ever changing, ever challenging, yet static in its purpose. I love this work, I love who I do it for, and I am proud to represent the best at what we do in the most difficult states in the union. As a professional who makes her living in the space of satisfied clients, I take the voice of my clients [and peers] to a personal level, seeking authenticity in every relationship I am fortunate to build. In this regard, nearly all of my clients become friends, and with all of my friends, I enjoy wining and dining.
Wine student. Ardent yogi. Autodidact. Bonafide oenophile. Traveler. Lady golfer. Earth, animal & veggie advocate. Hungry for more. I don’t do anything small. I don’t do anything half-in. I maintain a need for emotional control out of self defense, but wear my heart on my sleeve. I will try anything twice, except a bad date. I am drawn to emotional intelligence, cherish articulate character, stand for truth, and my feet remain grounded in humility because of the pocket full of “do-overs” I wish I had to make the world behind me right.
It is winter of 2016 and these musings are the origins of my passion project. During the silence of my Christmas holiday, a whispering voice in the corner of my heart began to question, suggest, beg for the release of my creative. There was no choice but to listen, because I believe a life without exploring your creative is a life that lacks the fullest expression of passion. All ten of my fingerprints must mark my life and produce a value of my own creation. At this realization I am moved to discovery and this work shall trail the footprints of my rabbit hole into the world of wine.
“There is no use trying,” said Alice, “one can not believe impossible things.” To which she replied, “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.

Originally from Paso Robles, California, but writing from Dallas, Texas, the aim of this manifesto is to honor the roots of my past and navigate the path of my creative future. [See entry one: “Go Broke. For Wine.”] In my craving for more, I start this dialogue of one, while maybe attracting many.
