Calla Braymer
Volunteer

I graduated with a BS from Grand Valley in 2018. Inbetween volunteering at Laurentide, I am pursuing online Early Childhood Education work. I am a hard-working and dedicated person that will put in the effort on the tasks I have to accomplish.
My passion for learning about people while selling wine during special events and at the West Side Farmers Market in Ann Arbor has helped build my customer service skills while applying them to the winery. I choose to work at the winery to expose myself to another part of the hospitality world that I am continuing to learn about. I enjoy the pleasure and company of sharing great wine with friends. Wine is a way to bring people together and create friendships.

3 Words That Describe Me
Caring, Hardworking, Considerate.
Favorite Laurentide Wine & Pairing
Sauvignon Blanc with Fresh Fish.
