Thank you so much for making our event such a delight. The feedback was terrific. You were able to engage our group well and appreciate your passion for wine.

The information was enjoyable and more thorough than most. I really appreciated that the wines were tailored to my tastes and I was able to taste/learn about specific regions. The wines were great and I'll be purchasing them again for home consumption.

My genuine interest in wine began in 2013 and hasn't let up since!

I started hosting "wine nights" for my friends and quickly realized that

for me, wine was becoming more than just a hobby. 

  • 2017 - Moved to D.C. from Michigan 

  • 2018 - Changing careers from events to Food & Beverage

    • Began as a Host for a Michelin-star restaurant in a Forbes Five Star

    • hotel in D.C. ​

  • 2019 - Enrolled in the WSET Level 3 Course

    • Passed the Level 3 exam with Merit (Distinction in Theory)​

    • Promoted from Host to Wine Director 

  • 2020 - Covid & Hotel/Restaurant Shutdown

    • Created The Social Somm as a creative outlet during quarantine 

    • ​Career "pivot" as Manager with a commercial real estate development company, overseeing the development and operations of opening a14,000 sq. ft. food hall in Foggy Bottom, D.C. ​​

  • 2021 - Sat and Passed the Court of Master Sommelier Certified Exam 

  • 2022 - Back to the Hotel Biz

    • Settled back into the Food & Beverage industry as the Manager of Food & Beverage Outlets in a luxury hotel in D.C. ​


I am currently a WSET Level 4 Diploma (DipWSET) student and plan to take the Advanced Sommelier exam in 2024. 

I created The Social Somm as a means of combining my two passions: event planning and wine! My hope is to create experiences that help others fall more deeply in love with wine, one sip at a time.
