I have a masters in teaching, which I used to teach high school English for some years. I quit to pursue my true interest, wine. I am now a wine consultant for a retailer and really love to share my passion with others, and to educate people on how to better enjoy their food and drink. I was recently certified as a specialist of wine by the Society of Wine Educators.
