Monthly Wine Columns
For over a decade, I've been writing for both print and online media outlets about food, wine, travel, health and wellness, and other lifestyle-related topics. Other platforms include website, brochures, digital marketing including email and newsletters, and social media channels. I had a column in Austin Woman Magazine called “A Girl Walks Into a Bar” and wrote a column for SRQ Magazine called “Inside the Kitchen.” Recently I received a Level 2 Award in Wines certification from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), and currently write a monthly wine column in the Health & Leisure special section of the Venice Gondolier Sun. My work also regularly appears in Edible Sarasota, Real Exclusive Magazine, and VODA Magazine. Additionally, I am a social media consultant for Sigrid Olsen Design, Sigrid is an internationally-recognized fashion designer and artist. I've made TV appearances on local NBC and Fox news affiliates as well as Cooking Channel’s Eat Street.
