Association & Operations Manager
CT joined the Washington Wine Institute in April 2016. Prior to taking an eleven year hiatus to stay home with her family, she worked for Intel Corporation as a Materials Program Manager. Her computer and organizational experience at Intel, along with her love of Washington wine made her the perfect candidate to manage the day to day operations for the institute. Originally from the Midwest, CT is a graduate of Purdue University and lives in Olympia with her husband, Mike and their dog, Macie. CT has three children. Her oldest graduated from Gonzaga University and is currently completing their PhD in BioMedical Engineering at the University of Rochester. Her middle child, also a Gonzaga graduate, is working as a medical assistant in Bellevue WA and applying to med schools. CT's youngest attends Purdue University majoring in Aeronautical Engineering. CT enjoys traveling with her family to sunny destinations throughout the country and of course, visiting WA state wineries!
