While working at the winery, she joined a company which provided small, semi-private, educations wine tours within the FLX region. Within this time, she also became beverage manager and wine captain of a high-end catering company, where she was able to continue her work with local winemakers in putting together tasting menus for private events.

    She obtained her sommelier training through The Court of Master Sommeliers and is a member of the Guild of Sommeliers. SHe is currently a member of the sommelier team at Les Trois Rois, a 5-star hotel in Basel, where she serves as the bar sommelier and bar supervisor.
