I’m just thrilled that I’ve had the chance to meet and get to know so many of our amazing club members over the years. I’ve been at Bella since the beginning when we were pouring wine out of a trailer 12 years ago. I’ve worn many hats over the years and now I get to add one more hat to the rack! In addition to working at Bella, I also get to host you at Ru’s Farm. It’s a beautiful property with 2 cottages available — with endless views, chickens, fruit trees and Bella on the deck — truly relaxing on the vineyards! I have been working in hospitality, weddings, events, food and wine for 25 years, including Director of Hospitality here at Bella. I have always known this was something I was meant to do! Every since I was younger I was playing ‘host’ to my friends and family. I remember playing “Cruise Director” for hours on end, welcoming ever yone who would come to board my “ship”! I loved leaving my guests little treats — towels, flip-flops, chap-stick and anything to make my cruise passengers feel special. Well, 35 years later, it still thrills me to make everyone feel welcome — this is what truly makes me happy. I have my dream job — I cannot wait to help make your stay fun, magical and unforgettable! I live in Sonoma County with my husband, four children, two dogs; Tippy and Brer Bear, two cats; Ginger and Lola, and a brood of chickens. We all love to recharge by going on hikes through the California mountains and reading on the beach (well, not the cats and chickens). I look forward to helping create an experience that you will love and remember!
