I started working in the wine and spirit world in 1989 where I worked in shipping and receiving for various liquor distributors. In 2002 I began working part-time for McKinley Wine & Spirits, which eventually turned into a full time management position here. I really enjoy the retail experience, especially the interaction with customers and fellow employees. I have learned a lot in the last couple of years here at McKinley and it continues thanks to help from our knowledgeable staff.
I joined McKinley Wine & Spirits in July of 2013. After graduating from college with a degree in restaurant management, I worked in country club management for 13 years. I have 20 years' experience in the liquor wholesale business and 8 years and counting in wine & spirits retail establishments. I thrive on front-end customer service and feel proud knowing that is a strong point here at McKinley. Come on in and let our friendly and knowledgeable staff help you find the perfect wine or spirit selection for your needs. Remember, our WineStation cuvinet system is always stocked with both red and white wine for you to sample when you stop by—you'll be glad you did!
As the Wine Specialist here at McKinley, I will try to help you find the perfect wine for your occasion. Whether it be a gift, party, wine tasting or just a Friday night movie wine we have what you want. There is nothing like bumping into one of our customers out locally and having them tell you they loved the wine you picked. Look for wines recommended by our staff too when we can't be there to help you.
