After she graduated from a college, she has started working in a wine industry. She worked at a small winery at her first career and after 2 years of working with this winery, she got an opportunity to work with a mid-sized family owned winery where her real career experience begun. She was in charge of all the Asian tourist groups(i.e. Getting contract to bring groups to the winery, creating unique program, booking groups etc) After few years, she realized that there is a limitation to her career if she worked for a family owned business and the only skill she had was that she speaks Japanese. That’s when she decided to take sommelier program. During the sommelier course, she met her future colleague who helped her to move on to the biggest and most internationally known winery in Canada. She was still taking sommelier course when this great opportunity came and she decided to take it.
