Hospitality Sales & Events Coordinator
Jen was born and raised in Northern California and planned on pursuing a career in Botany, but an unexpected introduction to wine her senior year at CSU, Chico, changed her path. That initial introduction sparked a passion for all things wine. After graduation, she took a job as a distributor sales rep with Southern Wine and Spirits and thus began her adventure into the wine industry. For 13 years she honed her sales skills and broadened her wine knowledge working for wine distributors in California and Florida. In 2010, while living in Florida, an opportunity to return to beautiful Napa Valley and join iconic Araujo Estate Wines presented itself and she promptly accepted. Jen has spent the last 12 years expanding her skills and knowledge to include DTC sales, Hospitality and Fulfillment working in several top Napa Valley wineries such Morlet Family Vineyards and Fait Main Wines before landing at the exquisite and authentic Crocker & Starr Winery to assume the role of Hospitality Sales and Event Coordinator.
In her free time, she enjoys reading, gardening, traveling and spending time on her farm with her family. Jen and her wife love their chickens and share fresh eggs with the Crocker & Starr Team.
