Since 2007 I have been pursuing my interest in Master level Wine & Spirits education. I have studied at Wente Vineyards US Sommelier Wine School Certificate programs led by Karl Wente, chief winemaker at Wente Vineyards, Dr. Carole Meredith, and world renowned Genetic Scientists and past Dean of the University Of California Davis Campus School Of Enology, and the master level instructors from the US Sommelier Association.

This has led to being a Managing Director of the Western United States Sommelier Association Wine Schools and their USSA on line web wine store operations. This program was founded in 1995 by wine masters from New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago and Aspen.

Currently the USSA Google Ad and social media marketing campaigns attract 1.4 million views to the brand and thousands of visits to our Wine School education programs and seminars throughout America.
