A frequent contributor to Wine Enthusiast magazine and website, she also has covered stories for Ski, AAA Magazines, Modern Bride (former travel editor), Specialty Travel (founding editor), ForbesLife MountainTimes, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, and other publications. She is creator of Seattle Essential, the #1 best selling travel app guide to the Emerald City. In addition, she literally has ”roots” in the wine business.
