MICHELLE, SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Michelle seemed destined to end up as an Aussie in Napa Valley – from her youth growing up in the renowned Yarra Valley wine region of Australia, she has always had a palate for the stories these grapes can tell. Her love of the outdoors and having an active lifestyle as a child led her to study the up-and-coming world of health promotion and marketing, but it was while working in this industry that she discovered her true passion – creating digital marketing content. Due to Napa’s proximity to the great technology hub of San Francisco, the dots connected themselves from there and she is now happy to call this wine country “home,” where she manages social media for multiple wineries and continues to chase her love of wine and the outdoors.
JULIO, DATA ANALYST

With vast experience in digital marketing, Julio helps businesses create profitable marketing campaigns. He has expertise in Google Adwords, Facebook Ads as well as marketing strategy, and creates high-performing campaigns for a range of industries. He's also intimate with setting up tracking for wine-centric platforms AMS, C7, and Wine Direct. He holds a degree in economics, and enjoys working with numbers and data that assist businesses in making the right decisions.
SARAH, SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS
After many years of digging into local food scenes, following political food movements, reading recipes, and spending hours in the kitchen in her down time, Sarah wanted more. In September 2018, she enrolled as a full-time culinary student at Napa Valley Cooking School. Now, she draws on her previous marketing and communications experience for Whole Foods Market and Idaho Department of Commerce to offer hospitality-driven solutions for enterprising businesses like Cork & Fork Digital Media.
