2016 Tin Sparrow Spring Interns
Intern & PR/Social Media Manager
Born in Oceanside, Ca, raised in the Yakima Valley, but then returned to Southern California where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from California Baptist University. I love anything adventurous, especially travel and hiking, I also have a ridiculous sweet-tooth and am a crazy dog lady. I LOVE dogs. Also I am currently the Assistant Tasting Room manager at Milbrandt Vineyards and am so excited to be interning as the Social Media Manager at Tin Sparrow Events!
