2023 Small Steps Wine Classic Sommelier
Lindsay first began her career in the hospitality industry in New York City at the age of 19 while also pursuing various other career paths, including dramatic arts and then international affairs. Her passion for food and beverage grew in the number of service positions that she held, and despite accomplishments in other fields she realized that a career in restaurants and wine was what truly satisfied her.
She moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 2012 and worked as the Wine Director at Northside Social Wine and Coffee. In 2015 she jumped at the opportunity to move to Houston and work first as a sommelier and then general manager of Camerata at Paulie’s. During that time, she was awarded the Advanced Sommelier Certificate through the Court of Master Sommeliers.
Lindsay then took on a position as a sommelier at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse in Houston, where she worked alongside a talented wine team including two Master Sommeliers. At the beginning of 2020, she accepted the post of Director of Wine & Beverage at River Oaks Country Club. She is thrilled to take on the role while continuing to study for her Master Sommelier Certification.
