I have been curious about wine since, as a child, my wine enthusiast Father encouraged me to
smell and taste the wines he and my Mother were exploring. After studying architecture and
furniture making I have had a winding career path. I have been, among other things, a bread
baker, a picture frame maker and I even briefly sold Mont Blanc pens to junior executives in a
gift shop on Madison Avenue! After living in New York City and Boston for ten years my
husband and I settled in Winchester in 1994 to start a family. Old Town Winchester veterans
may remember me behind the counter of The Satisfied Mind Bookstore and Coffeehouse. Now,
as I anticipate retiring from a 25 year career with USPS, I am really enjoying my new chapter
with Murphy where I can indulge and broaden my love of wines, and share with customers.

Do I love cheese or wine more? Both! Best pairing ever, unctuous, washed rind Grayson with
Fabbioli Cellars Chambourcin…. my mouth is watering.
