    About Sommelier Steph

    After devoting 17 years to emergency and critical care veterinary nursing, Steph decided to leave medicine and turn her much loved wine hobby into a second career. She began working at a Finger Lakes winery where she immersed herself in every aspect of wine making: vineyard experience, harvest and crush, and the tasting room where she honed her skills in food and wine pairing. While working in the winery, she joined a company which provided small, semi-private, educational 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.

    She lives in Muttenz with her husband Richard, her dog Gracie, and her super adorable kitty Ophelia.

    2020 DA Germany Annual General Meeting

    2020 is going to be a pivotal year for the future of American democracy. At Democrats Abroad Germany, we remain committed to mobilizing the over 100,000 Americans in Germany to restore respect, dignity, and ingenuity to our nation’s highest offices.

    Getting Republicans out and Democrats in next year, however, is going to be a collective effort. It’s going to require us to work together nationwide like never before, keeping our eyes set on one main goal: getting each and every American in Germany to vote.

    As 2020 approaches, we would thus like to cordially invite you to join us in our efforts by attending the

     

    2020 Annual General Meeting of Democrats Abroad Germany
    focused on
    “Getting Out the Vote – At Home and Abroad”

    A great series of events are planned to help us – Democrats across Germany – connect and discuss our voter outreach efforts in 2020. These events are outlined in our tentative

    Schedule

    • On Friday, January 24, we’ll kick off the weekend by volunteering with the Münchner Tafel, a local food bank, to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day (10:00-14:00). We’ll also hear from the Women’s Caucus, which has put together a fantastic panel and performance centered around the topic “Don’t Get Mad, Get Even – Electing People Who Will Create Balance” (16:00-20:00). The first evening will come to a close with a welcome cocktail reception where we can connect with each other over drinks (starting at 19:30).
    • On Saturday, January 25, the main meeting focused on “Getting Out the Vote – At Home and Abroad” will be held (9:00-17:30). We will begin with an introduction to our organization and briefly highlight our activities across Germany over the past year. Our full attention will then be directed at how we can work together nationwide to get out the vote in 2020. We will round off the main meeting by reviewing our organization’s bylaws as well as vote on any suggested changes to them. Suggested changes may be submitted until December 31, 2019, and should be directed to events@democratsabroad.de. Following the meeting, we’ll gather for a three-course gala dinner at the nearby restaurant Zum Franziskaner and hear from a guest speaker passionate about getting out the vote in 2020 (19:30-22:00).
    • On Sunday, January 26, we want to make sure that those from out of town have some time to see the city and have scheduled a walking tour of Munich (11:00-12:30). Following the tour, everyone is welcome to join us at the tasty vegetarian restaurant Prinz Myshkin for a farewell luncheon that will leave us invigorated for the election season ahead (12:30-14:00).
