Originally from Cape Cod, she has worked in the restaurant industry for over 25 years as a wine buyer, educator and a sommelier.

Her wine lists have garnered a number of awards, including, most recently, the Slanted Door Wine list as Best Short Wine List in North America by The World of Fine Wine.

"When I go into the city for wine tasting events with my sommelier team, we take the ferry (the truly civilized way to do this) and snag an early lunch table at The Slanted Door. While I always find some new tasty treats, it’s the simple stuff they do—like these chewy, umami-infused daikon cakes—that get me Jonesin' every time."
