Best decision I ever made! Her classes were fun, super informative and taught me so much. After only a month since completing my level 2, I got a full time wine and beverage steward job

She's fun down to earth and makes the entire experience amazing!  Not only did I pass the level 2 with flying colors, it also opened me up to a manager position at Wine Steals in Hillcrest!
