Let’s Work Together.
Here’s how I can help!
Hospitality – Advanced knowledge of food, wine and the makers/suppliers at the root of the restaurant business. Understanding of customer relationships. Experience at the upper echelon of the culinary world— fine dining restaurants have been my life since I was 12 years old in our family business and for 10+ years of my professional life in Miami as brand, communications and culture director for a James Beard Award-winning chef.
Branding and Marketing – My bread and butter. Any and all in the ecosystem of a brand, its creative direction and communications strategy, and the wide/versatile range of skills in the area production to effectively execute, including: graphics design, content creation (Sony Alpha 7sii and iPhone 11 Pro photography, video, and editing), platform publication (website/social media/community management), copywriting, messaging, and research/reporting.
Public Relations – International food, wine, spirits and travel media relationships, and archive of resulting media coverage.
Community Relations/Collaborations – Acute understanding of the importance of cultivating old and new audiences through likeminded partnerships and grass roots events. Affinity for evolving brands through working with and learning from others – and the creativity and innovation that results.
Language – Fluent Spanish. Conversational Italian. And English is my first language. I also hold a Bachelor of the Arts degree from Northwestern University (2002, Evanston, Illinois, USA) in 20th Century English Literature.
Interests – NATURE. Trekking, exploring drawing plants with pastels. Active outdoorswoman. Skier. Runner. Beer enthusiast. Long time creative writer, specifically poetry. Drinking wine! Cooking. Dancing. Comida casera. Animals.

A language enthusiast and expert when it comes to all things branding, digital media, advertising and marketing. She is also an accomplished artist, writer and photographer/photo journalist. A maker in the truest sense. A creative treasure with talents hard to list as it would take too much time.Jeffrey Wolfe, Proprietor, Wolfe’s Wine Shoppe, Miami, FL
