About Michelle

PR and communications have been my focus for more than 14 years – from managing accounts at award winning agencies, leading in-house communications, and consulting for food and nutrition companies. I took a few years off to work as a sales executive for The Henry Wine Group, enhancing my knowledge about wine and developing a true excitement for the industry.

Combining my backgrounds was a natural transition that allows me to help small to mid-sized wineries navigate their way through such a competitive market. Although Chicago is where my roots are, San Francisco has been home for almost 20 years and a place I love – from the local food and wine scene to enjoying the outdoors with my husband and two children.
