Membership & Brand Development Manager
Amanda was raised in the Finger Lakes wine region of New York State where she gained an early appreciation for wine and the land. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree, followed by her MBA in Philadelphia, she returned to the Finger Lakes and utilized her business degree and interest in wine by managing a well-established family-owned winery. There, she quickly began to learn more about wine and the industry and found she could build a career around her passions.
In 2010 Amanda had the opportunity to move to the Bay Area and then Napa Valley, where she enjoyed the California lifestyle while leading high-profile luxury wineries in the areas of hospitality, sales, and business development. Amanda joined the Sojourn team in 2017 and is a true advocate of the incredible quality of wines produced each vintage. Throughout her tenure Amanda has served as Director of Hospitality, Wine Club Manager, and now, Membership & Brand Development Manager.
In 2022, Amanda relocated to North Carolina. Serving as our East Coast ambassador, Amanda is focused on providing exceptional personalized service to our members across the country, both in-person and remotely while building brand recognition and loyalty in the market.
Amanda resides in Raleigh, NC with her husband Matt, daughter Everly, and two bulldogs, Gus and Honey.
