Cara is the perfect somm for these everchanging times within the hospitality community. Her resume, knowledge, leadership and work ethic are unquestionably impressive, but her ability to educate beginners as well as advanced professionals with humility and expertise is exceptional. I have never met another somm of Cara's caliber who is so approachable and engaging with her knowledge.

Cara is a superb wine educator. During the time that we worked together she not only expanded my personal skills but also that of our entire staff. I watched her meet each person where there were, expanding all our knowledge little by little. Cara is excellent at providing key guide posts for service and theory, while encouraging you do the rest.
