I was born and raised in Italy until I was 28 years old. I received my Master’s in Agricultural Science in 2003, at the University of Bologna, and then completed my Sommelier diploma in 2005, mastering wine and food pairing techniques.
Shortly after these accomplishments I decided that I wanted to learn English and moved to the United States. I accepted a position with the Chateau St. Michelle winery where I was able to utilize and improve my winemaking knowledge by working in the production department for about a year.
After my position ended at the winery, guided by my passion for wines, I worked as a wine representative. This experience gave me the opportunity to connect with managers and owners of fine dining establishments, with whom I’ve built strong rapports and for whom eventually I ended up working in some of Seattle’s best restaurants.
In addition to my passion for wine, I have always loved teaching and had the privilege of teaching Italian in many schools in the Seattle area. I enjoy learning and teaching foreign languages, so in 2012 I received my TESOL certificate which allows me to teach English to foreign students. These life changing experiences have allowed me to continually grow as an individual and therefore I chose to continue my journey here in the Pacific Northwest and the city of Seattle. I am truly happy and thankful to call this beautiful area home.
Constantly improving myself both on a personal and professional level, along with my strong desire to “stay on top of my game,” I have recently completed the diploma program with Wine Spirit Education Trust, an organization based out of London who offers wine studies in other countries, including the United States.
Having received positive feedback and encouragement from a variety of individuals throughout my life, I am ready to take this next step by advancing my career into the real estate world. My humble approach in assisting, teaching, and sharing my knowledge has given me the confidence to take on this whole new adventure that will allow me to continue to offer superb advice with attention to details.
Real Estate compliments my personality as it takes discipline, motivation, and commitment to helping others with whatever they hope to accomplish, while still allowing me to continue my other passions.
While taking classes at Rockwell for my license, I was trying to determine which company would be a good fit for me. My classmates and teachers frequently recommended Windermere as one of the top companies in the northwest because of the education provided to their brokers.
I believe in conducting a healthy lifestyle by keeping myself occupied and staying active by engaging in activities such as: tennis, hiking, soccer, and dancing salsa and tango. During my down time, I play guitar, explore new films, concerts, or literature. Another of my pastimes is exploring the local restaurants and wineries of Seattle.
