Napa, here I come!

Welcome to Napa Valley!
Welcome to Napa Valley!

No, it’s not a just a trip, but it’s a brand new life for me! Taking off the end of 2013 really allowed me to relax and open my heart and mind. When my part-time wine business employment ended, I didn’t panic, but just decided to breathe. I reached out to my wine and travel contacts to let them know I was seeking employment opportunities. Two responded. One was in the form of a text message: “Have you ever thought of moving to Napa?” Without hesitation, my intuition replied yes. Thus, my journey to Napa began.

I’ll be living in Napa and working full-time at a winery in St. Helena. I still have to pinch myself sometimes. However, when I look back at my recent past, from 2008 to the present, I can now see my path: wine business travel manager, my first wine moment, participation in virtual Twitter tastings, the start of my wine and travel blog, WSET courses, my first wine business job, and now this. I believe we all have a path of which we may not aware. To find it, just allow yourself be open to following your passion and trust your heart, your core, your gut, your intuition.
