I graduated from Grand Valley this spring and have retained a continuing interest in hospitality and customer service during my time working at the winery during the summers. I am a hard working and dedicated person that will put in the effort with 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 have found that I enjoy the pleasure and company of sharing wine with friends. Wine is a way to bring people together and create friendships.
