Hospitality, event-planning, and guest satisfaction have been the focus of every position held by Ann-Marie since she first ventured into the world of work. A Sonoma County native, she grew up surrounded by the people and the influences of the wine country. After graduating from the University of San Diego she held positions in San Diego as a Catering Sales Manager specializing in the wedding market as well as corporate Catering Sales at the San Diego Convention Center.
Following her career path, but drawn back to family and the lure of Wine Country, she happily accepted a post as Director of Catering at the new Vineyard Creek Hotel & Spa, Santa Rosa's newest luxury hotel. Her next position took her further into the world of wine as she became the Director of Hospitality at Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards & Winery. Most recently she worked for Wine Country Party & Events where she honed her skills in planning, and event design for the past several years.
